Sanghis have been running a rotten propaganda to defame the ongoing farmers’ movement against new agriculture laws. Farmers of Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand spoiled their plans by opening a front at the Ghazipur border. As soon as the farmers reached the Singhu Border, BJP and its media channels started to promote falsehoods and lies to label the farmers movement as antinational. They didn’t tire of labelling it everything from Khalistani to Naxalite to only-limited-to-Punjab. Since the camp-in protest began at the Singhu Border, farmers of Uttar Pradesh started to gather at the Ghazipur border.
At first, the Modi government’s police tried to stop them. Baton charge and water cannons were used. But farmers didn’t budge. Accepting defeat, the police closed the border and farmers camped there. Farmers jammed the two roads leading to Delhi, and started discussing the further course of action. Ever since, the number of farmers participating in the protest at that border has soared.
Now a stage has been constructed there. BKU’s national speaker Rakesh Tikait, Kisan Sabha’s central committee member D.P. Singh, Terai Organisation’s Jagtar Singh Bajwa, Tejender Singh Virk, Uttar Pradesh Farmer Union’s joint secretary Chandrapal Singh, leaders of various unions and honourable citizens are working on addressing and directing the protestors.
At various places, the police administration of UP and Uttarakhand has started to arrest the farmers coming to participate in the protests.
