On a call given by the Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU), Haryana farmers will on Sunday organise road blockades to protest the farm Bills. The Khattar government has instructed DCs and SPs to deal with the protesters with "tact and patience".

Matter of justice

I am proud that when the hour of reckoning arrived, my party, as always, has held aloft the flag of justice for farmers, other exploited sections —Parkash Singh Badal, SAD

"

Farm organisations led by BKU state president Gurnam Singh Charuni have given a call for a three-hour blockade from 12 noon to 3 pm. The government had faced flak over its handling of the kisan rally in Pipli on September 11. This time, it has asked its officials to exercise restraint.

The Additional Chief Secretary, Home, has written to commissioners, IGs, DCs and SPs to ensure that nobody takes law into his/her own hands. "Organisers should be prevailed upon to register their protest in a peaceful and lawful manner and desist from blocking highways," reads the letter.
