d

NEW DELHI: Delhi Chalo march by farmers against the anti-farmer policies has been temporarily stopped. The strike was stopped with the aim of bringing more farmers. The leaders said that the strike will continue strongly at the border. The leaders of farmers' organizations said that more farmers will be brought to the border.

At the same time, farmers' leaders are of the stand that justice should be ensured for the young farmer Shubhkaran Singh, who was killed during the Delhi Chalo agitation and the post-mortem will not be allowed until the culprits are punished. They asked the Punjab government to be ready to register an FIR.

The farmer's family rejected the Rs 1 crore compensation announced by the Punjab government and the promise of a government job for his sister. The family stated that they are seeking justice and cannot compare with money and work. At the same time, the Haryana Police withdrew from the decision to apply the National Security Act against the protesters. Meanwhile, a public interest petition reached the Supreme Court seeking intervention in the demands of the farmers.

Black day was observed under the auspices of Samyukta Kisan Morcha to protest the killing of the farmer. The central government's move for a consensus discussion is strong. Union Agriculture Minister Arjun Munda has repeatedly demanded that farmer leaders be prepared for the discussion. Meanwhile, there was a clash between farmers and police in Haryana's Hisar today. Tear gas shells were fired at the protestors who were on their way to the Khanauri border. Many people were detained. A policeman was injured.

BJP Punjab unit president Sunil Jakhar demanded a thorough investigation into the farmer's murder. Joining the family in grief. All life is important. He added that farmers' organizations should direct the energy of the youth in the right direction. Meanwhile, Haryana's Manoharlal Khattar government announced in the budget that it would provide minimum support prices for 14 agricultural crops. Penalty and interest on agricultural loans will be written off.
