Nothing less than the rollback of the controversial farm laws is acceptable to us, said Sukhdev Singh Kokri, general secretary of the BKU (Ekta).

However, farm unions are open to another round of dialogue if the Central Government’s intention is positive about repealing these laws.

Sukhdev Kokri, who is undergoing medical treatment after suffering multiple fractures in his arm, said he was in touch with all the developments taking place in Delhi. Farmers were determined to intensify their stir in the coming days across the country, he said.

He said farmers of West Bengal, Orissa and other eastern states had started agitations and many trade unions and students’ unions of Bengal that were active in Delhi had also extended support to the farm unions.

Kokri, who is one of the brains behind the farmers’ movement, alleged that the intentions of the NDA government were not good. The party leadership may be thinking that farmers would get tired and return to their homes after a few days, considering the cold conditions. “But now, farmers from various states are willingly coming to Delhi on their own with their own resources. It’s now becoming a people’s movement. Every section of society is supporting us. We are determined and won’t leave Delhi at any cost,” he said.
