Chandigarh, November 19

Farmer unions today announced that thousands of farmers will march to Delhi through five national highways on November 26.

Dr Darshan Pal of the Joint Kisan Morcha said on Constitution Day, i.e. on November 26, the country would witness a historic struggle of farmers. "The movement against the anti-farmer laws has now reached a decisive phase. Farmers across the country are arriving in the national capital for an indefinite struggle under the call of "Delhi Chalo". This "Samyukta Kisan Morcha" has the support of more than 500 farmer organisations of the country.

He said on November 26, farmers from neighbouring states would reach Delhi from five national highways. Farmers will march to

Delhi, assembling on the Amritsar-Delhi National Highway (Kundli Border), Hisar-Delhi highway (Bahadurgarh), Jaipur-Delhi highway (Dharuhera), Bareilly-Delhi highway (Hapur), Agra-Delhi highway (Ballabhgarh). The farmers hope that they will get a chance to raise their voice by entering the national capital. However, if they are stopped at any place, the peasants will stage a peaceful dharna. Farmers will take their tractors and travel towards Delhi.

Announcing participation in the programme, the coordination committee of 30 farmer organisations demanded the lifting of the economic blockade of Punjab and the resumption of goods trains immediately. It also demanded lawsuits against farmers filed in any part of the country during the ongoing protests to be immediately withdrawn.
