The protesting farmers yesterday said that their preparations for the “peaceful march” are in full gear and there is no question of going back. The farm unions have announced that thousands of farmers will take out the tractor rally on the Outer Ring Road in the national capital on January 26. They say more farmers are likely to flock to the protest sites after Guru Gobind Singh Jayanti on Wednesday. “We want the government to give us permission for our rally. This is our country and it is our constitutional right to voice our needs and demands,” said Amarjeet Singh Rarra, general secretary, Deaba Kisan Committee. “We will march with our farmer unions’ flags and the national flag. So if they fight us, they will be fighting the ‘tiranga’, he said. He added that instead of preventing the farmers from taking out the march, ‘the Centre and the police should provide a safe corridor for the rally’. (PTI)
