New Delhi, March 6 : Farmer leader Darshan Pal Singh on Saturday informed that a nationwide agitation against corporatisation and privatisation would be held on March 13 where farmers and labourers would throng the railway lines and agitate there.
“This is our next move to intensify the ongoing protest,” said Pal, who is the Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) Spokesperson.
Pal was present at the Kundli-Manesar-Palwal (KMP) Expressway which was blocked by thousands of farmers on Saturday to mark 100 days of the protest which started on November 26, 2020 with an intent to pressurise the Central government to repeal the three new Union farm laws.
While speaking to IANS, Pal shared the helplessness against the crackdown on the farmers’ protest by the Centre, including Internet shutdown and FIRs against those showing sympathy for the farmers’ cause.
“What can we do if such things happen to us. We can only face and resist apart from taking precautions that no anti-national elements infiltrate our agitation,” he said.
The latest in the list of crackdown is the infamous “toolkit” case which names environmental activists from India such as Disha Ravi and international activists such as Greta Thunberg in the FIRs lodged by the Delhi police.
