Chandigarh, January 27
The Samyukta Kisan Morcha on Wednesday held an emergency meeting under the leadership of Balbir Singh Rajewal.
The farmer organisations appreciated the struggling farmers for extending an unprecedented response to the Kisan Republic Day Parade. They discussed the violent incidents in New Delhi and concluded that the Centre had been severely shaken by their agitation. They claimed that a dirty conspiracy was hatched with Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Committee and others against the peaceful struggle.
They said when the farmer organisations announced the Kisan Parade on January 26, anti-social elements like Deep Sidhu and others, along with the said farmer organisation, tried to torpedo the farmers’ agitation.
They claimed that under this conspiracy, the said farmer organisation and other persons announced that they would march on Ring Road and unfurl a flag at Red Fort. So the Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Committee started marching on the Ring Road two hours before schedule, they said, adding that it was a deep-rooted conspiracy to derail the peaceful struggle. They said the farmer organisations appealed to the farmers to stay on the protest venues and continue a peaceful struggle.
The farmers’ organisations resolved to continue the agitation and condemned the government and administration, the said farmers’ organisation and anti-social elements, who tried to damage the peaceful struggle.
The organisations resolved not to allow the government and other forces inimical to the peaceful movement to break the struggle. They said Tuesday’s events clearly exposed and isolated the anti-farmer forces.
