TAD NewsDesk, New Delhi: Bharatiya Kisan Union leader Rakesh Tikait announced that they have decided to block the Delhi-Noida border without mentioning any particular day or time for doing the same.
“Yes, we will block the border (Delhi-Noida border). The committee is yet to decide the date.”
Earlier this month, the protesting farmers had blocked the Kundli–Manesar–Palwal Expressway (Western Peripheral) as the anti-farm law protest at Delhi borders completed 100 days. The expressway was blocked at various points for five hours, from 11 am.
Last month PM Modi said,
“This House, the Government and we all respect the farmers who are voicing their views on the farm bills. This is the reason why topmost Ministers of the Government are constantly talking to them. There is great respect for the farmers. After the Laws relating to agriculture were passed by Parliament – no Mandi has shut. Likewise, MSP has remained.”
The farmers from all the states of the country reached Delhi in the month of November and have been staying put on the borders of Delhi to protest against the Centre farm laws.
The Centre has held several rounds of formal talks with the representatives of farmers in the past few months to resolve the issue over the farm laws, but failed to achieve any concrete solution with the unions sticking to their main demand for the repeal of the legislations.
