'Delhi Chalo' Protest Call By Farmers Of 500 Outfi
Farmers across the country gear up to further agitate against the contentious farm legislation brought by the central government. Leaders of various farm outfits in India have announced that “on the occasion of the Constitution Day (November 26), farmers from neighbouring states will march to Delhi from five major routes. This decision was taken in the meeting of United Kisan Morcha held at Kisan Bhawan in Chandigarh on Thursday evening.

All India Kisan Sangharsh Coordination Committee, Rashtriya Kisan Mahasangh and various factions of Bhartiya Kisan Sangh have formed a joint ‘Samyukta Kisan Morcha’ with the aim to pressure the Central Government to scrap the three new agricultural laws. This front has the support of more than 500 farm organisations.

Various farmer leaders have also constituted a seven-member committee to maintain coordination in the functioning of the Delhi Chalo march of November 26. Yogendra Yadav, a member of the committee and chairman of Swaraj India, said on November 26, farmers will move towards Delhi from five highways, from Kundli border on the Amritsar-Delhi National Highway, from Bahadurgarh on the Hisar-Delhi Highway, from Daruhera on the Jaipur-Delhi National Highway, from Hapur on the Bareilly-Delhi Highway and via Ballabhgarh on the Agra- Delhi Highway.

Meanwhile, seven-time MP from West Bengal and President of All India Kisan Sabha Hannan Mollah along with All India Kisan Maha Sangh convenor Shiv Kumar Kakaji said that the protest will end only when their demand for the dissolution of new laws is met. While Gurunam Singh Charuni, Haryana BKU chief, said that he himself does not know how long the protest will last, but he will not stop until the farmers' demands are met.

He further said that the government cannot stop people from going to the capital. If this happens, then they also have an alternative plan. However, he did not tell what the second plan was.

In September, the Shiromani Akali Dal, an NDA ally, along with all opposition parties, had also opposed three agricultural laws from the Parliament and during this time, the minister from the Akali Dal, Harsimrat Kaur Badal, also resigned from the cabinet.

But despite all the protests, the central government passed these three laws from both houses of Parliament, which was later approved by the President.
