Tohana, June 1
Today, the program of MLA Devendra Babli in Tohana, Haryana was opposed by farmer organizations. MLA used abusive and insensitive language with the farmers in order to give violent colour to the peaceful demonstration of the farmers. Even after this, the farmers continued to protest against the MLA. Farmers were lathi-charged by police in which Haryana’s brave farmers Gyan Singh Bodi, Sarvajit Sidhu and Buta Singh Fatehpuri suffered deep injuries. Samyukta Kisan Morcha condemns this ruthless action. The MLA used derogatory and abusive words against farmers. This is a reflection of the instability of BJP and JJP leaders. The MLA falsely accused the farmers saying that the farmers attacked the MLA’s car but this is a completely false allegation. Samyukta Kisan Morcha appeals to the farmers of Haryana for a strong peaceful protest against this behaviour of the MLA. At the same time, we warn all the BJP and JJP leaders of Haryana that they should not instigate the farmers or else the leaders may have to face bad consequences. Soon after this incident, farmers also blocked the Hisar Chandigarh Highway in protest.
There has been heavy damage due to rain and storms on Delhi’s borders and farmers protest sites in Haryana, Punjab and Rajasthan. A large number of farmers’ tents including the main stage at Singhu and Tikri borders have been damaged. This is the time when BJP is busy with its strategy for the Uttar Pradesh elections. The central government has considered the issues of elections to be more important than farmers. On the call of the Samyukta Kisan Morcha, farmers are continuously coming to the borders of Delhi. Today, a batch of farmers from the Malwa region of Punjab reached the Singhu border. While the farmers are trying to stay strong in this season as well, we also appeal to the social welfare organizations and supporters of the farmers’ movement to extend all possible help at the dharna site.
On the one hand, where farmers continue to come to the borders of Delhi for 6 months, the farmers and farmers’ supporters in many parts of the country and the world have been showing resistance against the government. In places where there is no covid lockdown, farmers are protesting with a physical presence. Many of the organizations have organized programs like webinars, seminars and other online platforms in support of the Kisan movement.
