Haryana-farmers-protestCHANDIGRAH: The Haryana wing of farmers’ organisation Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) has mentioned it could block all main highways within the state for 3 hours – 12PM to 3PM – on Sunday (20.09.20) .
As a part of its protest in opposition to the central authorities’s refusal to withdraw contentious farm sector payments, which the BJP claims will open the agri market, and profit small and marginal farmers.
As the BKU urged its members to block all major highways amid continued protests outside the Ambala deputy commissioner’s office, Haryana Home Minister Anil Vij appealed that farmers not block national highways, and allow ambulances and the unwell to reach hospitals amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“It is farmers’ right to protest. India is a free country, it is in the constitution,” the BJP minister mentioned, including that opposition events had been deceptive farmers.
According to the Haryana BKU chief, they plan to cease site visitors on the Yamunanagar toll plaza, the Kurukshetra-Yamunanagar street, Kurukshetra- Pehowa Road, Kurukshetra-Kirmach Road, Ambala-Hisar Road and Shahbad-Panchkula Road.
The name for street blockades comes amid widespread protests throughout numerous states, together with Punjab, with a number of extra deliberate over the course of the approaching week, together with a “rail roko” from September 24 to 26.
Opposition events and allies, together with Akali Dal’s Harsimrat Kaur Badal who just lately resigned as a Union minister, mentioned their appealto the Prime Minister to take heed to the considerations raised by the farmers and maintain open discussions have fallen on deaf ears.

PM Modi has remained unfazed in his defence of the legislatures, which farmers imagine will dismantle the federal government help they take pleasure in and go away them susceptible to exploitation by non-public gamers. He has accused opposition events of spreading “misinformation” that farmers can be shortchanged.
“It is farmers’ right to protest. India is a free country, it is in the constitution,” the BJP minister said, adding that opposition parties were misleading farmers.
The bills, which were recently passed in the Lok Sabha amid stiff opposition from farmers and political parties, including BJP’s oldest ally Shiromani Akali Dal, are expected to be presented tomorrow before the Rajya Sabha where the numbers seem to be stacked in the ruling party’s favor.
