On the police action in western Uttar Pradesh and on the notice of the police on the ticker front, the Joint Farmer’s Front has issued a statement. While issuing the statement, the Morcha said that daily efforts are being made by the BJP to discredit the farmer movement. We will not let it succeed and this struggle of the farmers will surely succeed.
While issuing a letter to the United Kisan Morcha, Dr. Darshan Pal said that ‘BJP leaders and workers who came to discredit the farmers’ struggle in western Uttar Pradesh, beat up the farmers. Instead of taking action against the BJP workers, the police arrested the farmers. We strongly oppose the government’s anti-farmer conspiracies. Everyday efforts are being made by the BJP to discredit the peasant movement. We will not allow it to succeed and this struggle of the farmers will surely succeed.

Also, the letter states, ‘Some posters have been put up by the Delhi Police on the picketing, in which the farmers have been warned to vacate the picket. Such posters are irrelevant where farmers are demonstrating peace by exercising their fundamental rights. We oppose this move of the police and appeal to the farmers to continue the peaceful protest. With such threats and warnings, the plans to end the peasant movement will be strongly opposed and this will strengthen the peasant struggle.
Finance Minister of Punjab said on agricultural laws – what will happen if the government retreats two steps?
Let me tell you, farmers have been demonstrating on the borders of Delhi for the last several months in protest against the new agricultural laws of the central government. Farmers have been protesting at Tikri, Ghazipur and Singhu border in Delhi for several months. However, the farmers have now made a strategy to intensify the movement across the country by reducing the number of demonstrations. Under this, Kisan Panchayats are being organized in every state.
