Abohar, November 1

The Kisan Jagriti Yatra taken out by a joint forum of various farmer organisations from Sriganganagar to sensitise farmers against the farm laws evoked a good response when it reached the Hanumangarh grain market.

Addressing the gathering, yatra convener Ranjit Singh Raju said farmers, labourers and traders would have to fight in unison against the three "black laws" so that the Central Government was forced to change its stand.

Farmer leader Jaiveer Godara said the Narendra Modi government was playing into the hands of vested interests to ruin the mandis by enacting laws which would render millions of labourers unemployed. Also, farmers wouldn't find any place to sell his crop. The big corporate houses would not offer remunerative prices for any of the produce, feared Godara.

Another senior farmer leader Raghubir Singh Verma said there was no legal provision in the Central farm laws to purchase crops at the minimum support price.
