Farmers 'Rail roko' ends, to begin 'gherao' protests

Announcing the suspension of their month-long 'rail roko' at Shambhu railway station in Patiala, farmers declared they will now 'gherao' the residences of BJP leaders in Punjab and Haryana to continue their protest. 

 

Under the banner of the Samyukta Kisan Morcha (Non-Political) and Kisan Mazdoor Morcha, farmers have been occupying the rail track at Shambhu railway station since April 17, demanding the release of three farmers arrested by Haryana Police during the 'Delhi Chalo' protests at the Shambu border.

 

The SKM (Non-Political) and the KMM are spearheading the 'Delhi Chalo' march by farmers to press the central government over their demands on a legal guarantee of Minimum Support Price (MSP) for crops, among other demands. 

 

The protesting farmers are still at the Shambhu and Khanauri border points after their march to Delhi was stopped by security forces on February 13. 

 

On Monday, farmer leader Surjit Singh Phool said they are suspending the 'rail roko' agitation in Patiala. 

 

They have decided to 'gherao' the residences of BJP leaders in Punjab and Haryana in the coming days to press for the release of the three farmers, he said. 

 

Phool also said that they have decided to hold conferences on May 22 when the ongoing agitation at Shambhu, Khanauri, Dabwali, and Ratanpura completes 100 days. 

 

The suspension of the agitation could now free up the rail route for people in the area.
