“On February 13, the Haryana government used tear gas shells, rubber bullets on us…when we wanted to march ahead. They continued it every time we tried to march ahead. On February 21, they killed our youth Shubhkaran. They (the Union government) are telling us repeatedly that we can go by train or buses to lodge our protests in Delhi instead of tractors… So on March 6…states other than Punjab and Haryana will march towards Delhi in buses or trains. Let us see if they allow them to reach or not,” he said.

“Earlier too farmers from Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Tamil Nadu tried to reach Delhi on February 13, but they were not allowed and were stopped midway or detained in their houses… Let us see yet again. The Union government’s claims will be exposed,” he said, adding, “However, the morcha at Shambhu and Khanauri borders will continue while the one at Dabwali will be strengthened. We will not stop till our demands are met.”

Pandher added, “Not only this, on March 10, countrywide rail roko will be done from 12 noon to 4 pm. The Union government is repeatedly trying to set a narrative that only two farmer unions led by me and Jagjit Singh Dallewal ji are doing this protest… Hence the protests on March 6 and March 10 will tell them the truth that it is a nationwide agitation and over 200 farmer unions from across the country are part of this stir seeking to make MSP a legal guarantee. Calculation of MSP as per the Swaminathan report, punishment for the accused in the Lakhimpur Kheri incident, pension for farmers and labourers after attaining the age of 60 years are among the many demands.”
