Punjab and Haryana have intensified their protests against Central Agri Laws
and are camping at various protests sites on Delhi border. However, scores of
small farmers in neighbouring Uttar Pradesh have little knowledge of either the
new Central laws or the ongoing protests, even though they say that farming is
a non-profitable occupation and payments from the crop-buyers are erratic and
farmers complain of dwindling incomes but have no solution in sight for their
hardships. Clearly, farmer leaders have failed to communicate their agenda to a
broader spectrum of farming community.
Delhi Chalo protests by farmers is turning
violent. The agitating farmers from Punjab appear determined to break every
police barrier to reach Delhi and register their protest against Central
Agriculture laws. Their chief demand is: making purchase of crops below minimum
support price a punishable offence, instead of allowing corporate sector into
youth, middle-aged and old from rural Punjab told LokMarg that they would prefer
being shot in the chest than run away or turn their back. Calling the Central provisions
as Black Laws, the protesters are unfazed by police force or water cannons
deployed to bar their entry into Capital.
