Hours after Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s offer of holding talks, a group of farmer leaders at the Singhu border addressed the media today and said they will block Delhi from five entry points.
The farmer leaders who also claimed they will not allow any political person to stage a protest with them, said protesting farmers have enough space in their tractors for accomodations.
The government and bureaucracy are trying to fool us, sais farmer leaders.
They also said that the entry of corporates will result in prices crashing and farmers will suffer.
Thousands of farmers protesting against the Centre’s three farm laws decided not to shift to the Burari ground in Delhi and stay put at the Delhi borders. The demonstrators from Punjab continued to protest at the Singhu and Tikri borders on the fourth consecutive day.
“We’ve decided that we’ll never go to Burari Park as we got proof that it’s an open jail. Delhi Police told Uttarakhand Farmer Association President that they’ll take them to Jantar Mantar but instead locked them at Burari Park” Surjeet Singh, State President, Bhartiya Kisan Union Krantikari, told reporters.
He further said: “Instead of going to open jail in Burari, we’ve decided that we will gherao Delhi by blocking 5 main entry points to Delhi. We’ve got 4 months ration with us, so nothing to worry. Our Operations Committee will decide everything.”
