Farmers to Strike today from 8AM and 5PM

Vastavam web: Amid the deadlock over talks between farmers and the Centre, farmer leader Gurnam Singh Chaduni announced on Sunday that the heads of all farmer unions will observe a one-day hunger strike on Monday. The hunger strike, between 8 am and 5 pm, is part of the farmers’ plan to intensify their agitation from Monday. Addressing a press conference at the Singhu border, where the farmers have been camping for the past three weeks, Chaduni said the leaders will observe the hunger strike at their respective places. “Also, dharnas will be staged at all district headquarters across the country. The protest will go on as usual,” he said.

Farmers’ leader Shiv Kumar Kakka said, “Government agencies have been stopping farmers from reaching Delhi, but the protest will continue till their demands are met. Our stand is clear, we want the three farm laws repealed. All farmer unions participating in this movement are together.”
