Union ministers urge farmer leaders to maneuver to Burari; BKU declines


Tribune News Service

New Delhi/Bathinda, November 28

Union ministers, including Home Minister Amit Shah, appear to have called up farmer  leaders to convince them to proceed to the Nirankari Ground in Burari. This has been claimed by several organisations camping on the Delhi borders.

However, so far, they have not been able to convince farmers who believe that moving to Burari would adversely affect their current advantageous position on the highways and weaken the agitation against the three “black farm laws”.

Farmers are demanding permission for either Jantar Mantar or Ramlila Ground to register their protest.

BKU Ekta Ugrahan, too, has refused to go to Burari Maidan to protest.

BKU Ekta Ugrahan president Joginder Singh Ugrahan said they would not go to Burari Maidan. He added: “Five hundred farmer organisations had called for a demonstration at Jantar Mantar and they will reach there at any cost. If they were stopped, they would block the roads of Delhi by staging a dharna.”

He demanded immediate reconsideration of the application submitted by the 500 farmer organisations for the approval of the demonstration which was rejected by Delhi Police.

Giving an ultimatum to the Centre, he said if it did not approve the earlier application of the farmer organisations till Sunday, they would take the next decision on the spot and reach Jantar Mantar in any case.
