TAD NewsDesk, New Delhi: A Samyukta Kisan Morcha leader said that they will block the Kundli–Manesar–Palwal Expressway on March 6.
Farmer leader Balbir Singh Rajewal said a call has been given to farmers camping at three Delhi border points to block the KMP Expressway from 11 am to 5 pm on Saturday.
Mr Rajewal said,
“We will block the KMP expressway on March 6 as part of the intensification of the ongoing protest.”
The 136-km Kundli-Manesar-Palwal (KMP) Expressway or the western peripheral expressway was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2018.
The Samyukta Kisan Morcha said that a joint programme has been worked out which is supported by trade unions across the country.
In a statement, the Morcha said the month of March will witness numerous Mahapanchayats across the country, including in Madhya Pradesh, Karnataka, Telangana, West Bengal and Odisha.
The farmers had been protesting for many months now on the borders of Delhi. Their only demand is the complete repealing of the Centre farm laws by the Centre. There have been 11 meetings between the farmers and the government but no resolution has been reached yet.
