The All India Kisan Sangarsh Coordination Committee (AIKSCC) on Thursday gave a call for “Delhi Chalo” protests. The announcement of the protests came after a meeting at Chandigarh.
472 farm outfits across the country extended support to the protests. The agitating farmers will reach Delhi on November 26-27 in order to pressurise the Central government to revoke the three farm bills passed recently.
It also formed a seven-member committee to coordinate the operations of the ‘morcha’. The members include Bharatiya Kisan Union (Rajewal) president Balbir Singh Rajewal, AIKSCC convenor VM Singh, Swabhimani Shetkari Sangathana president Raju Shetty (represented by Hannan Mullah), Kisan Mazdoor Mahasangh president Shivkumar Kakaji, BKU (Ekta Sidhupur) Jagjit Singh Dallewal, BKU Haryana president Gurnam Singh Chaduni and Swaraj India president Yogendra Yadav.
Further Mr.Yadav lashed out at the Centre for “imposing economic blockade” on Punjab, and asked the Center resume goods trains in the state.
