Key Summary

  • On Wednesday, Rakesh Tikait, the leader of the Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU), said no farmer from Ghazipur would go to Delhi “secretly.” He urged authorities to reopen roads near protest sites to facilitate local residents’ movements.
  • There have been hundreds of farmers encamped at Delhi’s Singhu, Tikri, and Ghazipsipur borders since November 2020 calling for the repeal of three central farm laws.

Rakesh Tikait, leader of the Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU), stated Wednesday in Ghaziabad that no farmer from the Ghazipur border would travel to Delhi “secretly” and urged authorities to restore roads near protest locations for the convenience of local inhabitants.

Tikait made the remarks near the Ghazipur border as the Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM), an umbrella organization of protesting farm unions, received permission to organize a demonstration at the Jantar Mantar near Parliament beginning Thursday.

However, just 200 protestors have been permitted in the center of Delhi until August 9, despite significant security deployment in the area during Parliament’s ongoing Monsoon Session.

Tikait stated that a total of 200 farmers affiliated with the SKM will travel everyday to the Jantar Mantar via bus, as permitted.

“Authorities should reopen roads near protest areas that have been shuttered by authorities to alleviate local residents’ concerns. No farmer would travel surreptitiously to Delhi. We shall remain inside the boundaries of the approved protest at Jantar Mantar “‘He stated.

According to a statement by BKU media in-charge Dharmendra Malik, he was referring to a critical corridor connecting the Ghazipur border to Dabur chowk in Ghaziabad city that has been damaged by the protests that began at Delhi’s borders in November 2020.

Tikait also stated from the stage that a “countrywide mobilization” will be held in support of the “farmers’ revolution” and the repeal of the problematic three central farm legislation.

Meanwhile, a delegation of farmers from Karnataka led by Chukki Nanjudawamy reached the Ghazipur border on Wednesday to express sympathy with the ongoing action.

According to the statement, tribute was also paid to two farmers who were slain on July 21, 1980 in Karnataka during a farmers’ movement in the state.

Since November 2020, hundreds of farmers have been camped at Delhi’s Singhu, Tikri, and Ghazipur borders, demanding that the Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020, the Farmers’ (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020, and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020 be repealed and a new law guaranteeing minimum acreage be enacted.

However, the administration has maintained that the laws are pro-farmer in 11 rounds of formal negotiation with protestors.
