Farmers protest enters 28th day, deadlock continues

New Delhi: With the farmers agitation entering 28th day on Wednesday, the deadlock between protesting farmers and central government continues with no solution in sight.

On Wednesday, it was also Kisan Diwas, the birth anniversary of former PM Chaudhary Charan Singh also known as the champion of peasants.

Farmers at the Singhu border sitting in for the past 28 days, while those at Ghazipur border entering 26 day of their sit-in today remembered their icon on the birth anniversary, while the ones at Tikri border also demanded annulling of the new farm laws that they claimed to be anti-farmer.

A Havan as a tribute on Charan Singh’s birth anniversary was performed at the Ghazipur border in the morning hours today by the farmers and their leaders from Uttar Pradesh.

Meanwhile, some TMC MPs met the farmer leaders at the Singhu border today and spoke to them at te Singhu border.

More farmers at the Singhu and the other borders continued to join coming form the far flung region in Punjab and other states.

SAD leader Manjinder Singh Sirsa who was in Uttar Pradesh on intervening night of Tuesday – Wednesday, who had reached Moradabad to help farmers stuck at the Toll plaza where they were stopped by the state police, in a video uploaded on his instagram handle said that after the struggle through night, at the end the farmers could reach Ghazipur border to support their farmers brethren.

There was more participation seen increasing by elder women from Punjab at Singhu as well as from UP at the Ghazipur borders, while on the occasion of Kisan Diwas, more farmers also joined at the Tikri border.

Traffic movement at Singhu, Auchandi, Piau Manyari, Mangesh, Chilla, Ghazipur continued to remain suspended due to the farmer protests.

Medical camps and other facilities provided by the various social groups are also working tirelessly taking care of those farmers and protestors who are braving the harsh weather and need attention.

So far, several farmers have lost their lives amid the ongoing protests, while many have taken the beating of harsh weather and conditions which have affected their health.

Farmers , however, say that they will stand their ground and will not move until the government repeals the three agri-reform laws, which they claimed are anti-farmer.
