SKM to hold rally in Hansi on Nov 19

Jind, November 17

The Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM) will hold a state-level farmers’ rally in Hansi town on November 19 to step up the agitation on their demand for registration of criminal case against BJP Rajya Sabha MP Ram Chander Jangra and also to seek withdrawal of the criminal case registered on farmers in the Narnaund incident.

The farmers organised a mahapanchayat in Jind town today to discuss the issue of Hansi dharna and to take measures to strengthen the ongoing agitation at the Delhi borders.

On November 5, BJP MP Jangra visited Narnaund to lay the foundation stone of a dharamshala when the farmers staged a protest. During the protest, the windshield of the MP’s vehicle was allegedly smashed by the protesters.

The police deployed at the spot tried to control the situation resulting in a confrontation between the farmers and the police.

The police then cleared the way for the exit of the MP’s vehicle. The police had registered an FIR against 15 farmers with three of them identified as Harshdeep Gill, Kailash and Sudhir on November 5.
