Amid the ongoing framers’ protest at Delhi borders against the three Central agricultural laws, Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) leader Rakesh Tikait will hold a Kisan Mahapanchayat at Lakhnaur in Saharanpur district of Uttar Pradesh today.
According to sources, all preparations for the Kisan Mahapanchayat have been completed. Reportedly, in order to mobilize the historical crowd in Panchayat, BKU leaders were visiting villages and talking to farmers for the last several days.
A company of Provincial Armed Constabulary (PAC) and personnel from at least four police stations have been deployed to maintain law and order in the state, said sources. Police will also monitor the speeches of Kisan Mahapanchayat, they added.
Meanwhile, after her release from Karnal Jail on Friday evening, labour rights activist Nodeep Kaur said that she will join the farmers’ protest against the three farm laws at Singhu border, NDTV reported.
“I will definitely go to Singhu, sit with farmers,” Nodeep said, upon her release from Karnal Jail late in the evening. “I have not done anything illegal in the past and will not do anything illegal in the future and will always stand for the people,” she said.
She was arrested by the Haryana Police for leading an allegedly violent protest by factory workers. Moreover, the farmers’ protest against the three farm laws has entered its 92nd day on Saturday.
Apart from this, UN human rights chief Michelle Bachelet on Friday expressed hope that the ongoing dialogue efforts between the Indian government and the farmers protesting against the new farm laws will lead to an “equitable solution” to the “crisis” that respects the rights of all, PTI reported.
The farmers are protesting against 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.
