FARMERS PROTEST

Rahil Nora Chopra : A unique peaceful and non political Kisan dharna is going on all the borders since 13 days. The farmers requested all the political leaders of different parties who visited the dharna site not to create any political issue out of their agenda and demands as  it's purely the issue of  farmers . At every site of dharna the protesters have a management committee to manage the stage and speakers have  carefully mentioned to speak about the farmers issues only. Thousand of nearby resident visiting the site of dharna to see the farmers and are distributing water, milk, biscuits and fruits. The interesting scene is at Sonipat Delhi highway at the Singhu border where Nihang Sikhs took over the security of farmers. They are standing next to the police barricades bearing blue tunics and large turban with a chakra around them and arm with sword along with 50 to 60 horses brought to the border in trucks from Kudhiana, Ropar and other area of Punjab. The bird known as Baaj in Punjabi associated with the 10 Sikh Guru, Guru Gobind Singh as a symbol of strength and tenacity is with them. The Langer's are not just fiding the farmers camp at the border but also come as a boon to several under privileged people in the vicinity of the blockade as well as countless homeless people who otherwise would have struggled for even one square meal a day. The resilience showed by the farmers in cold winter condition is exemplary. As many as 15 opposition parties across India have lend support to the December 8 Bharat Bandh call by the farmers to protest against the three contentious ordinances.
