Intensifying their agitation against the three farm laws, farmer organisations protesting at New Delhi’s borders are planning to gherao Parliament during the upcoming Monsoon Session. In a meeting held by members of the Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM) at Singhu border on Sunday, a series of events have been proposed to take forward the protest during the Monsoon Session which begins on July 19.
The organisation stated that protests will be carried out on all days till the session ends. “On July 17, we will go to houses of leaders belonging to Opposition parties and give them a warning letter. It will be our request to either break their silence in the house or leave their seat. Five days later, a large group of people will leave Singhu, reach the Parliament, and tell the Opposition to disrupt proceedings inside. We will sit outside. We will keep repeating it; this is our plan to protest,” said Buta Singh Burjgill, president, BKU Dakaunda.
Farmers claimed the protest will be peaceful and will be a strong message to repeal the laws. More farmers from UP and Punjab are likely to join the protest ahead of the session, said farmer organisations.
