Senior farm leader Darshanpal said, “If by January 26, the demands are not met by the government, then farmers protesting at Delhi’s borders shall peacefully and non-violently lead a trolley/tractor parade into Delhi. These marches shall also be held in all state and district capitals,”

The leaders announced a plan of action in their first press conference. The fame leaders said that if the talks on January 4 do not succeed then they will organise a ‘march or parade’ from Singhu border, and Shahjahanpur protesters to Delhi. They will organise tractor and trolley rallies from January 6 to 20. On Lohri which is on January 13 copies of the farm laws shall be burnt and January 18 will be celebrated as Mahila Kisan Diwas, to mark and honour the women protesters.

The birth anniversary of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose on January 26 will be celebrated as Azad Kisan Diwas and to mark that farmers will ‘organise protests outside official residences of Governors in all state capitals’ said farm leader Darshanpal.

Thousands of farmers who are protesting against the farm laws at Delhi borders have braved police barricades, tear gas and cold. The protesting farmers say that the new farm laws will make them vulnerable to exploitation by big corporations, erode their bargaining power and weaken the government’s procurement system.
