Farmers protest at Shambhu border (File Photo)

Farmers are protesting at Shambhu border of Punjab-Haryana. Farmers’ protest is creating trouble for 30 nearby villages. The road is closed on both sides at the border. Villagers say that they often have to go to Ambala for the hospital and other essentials. But to reach Ambala by a different route one has to cover an additional distance of 20 to 25 km.

Due to farmers’ protest, people have constructed a temporary bridge over Ghaggar river for traffic. If this bridge is also not built, the problem will increase further. Farmers are worried as the monsoon is also about to knock. Ghaggar river has surged due to rain. In such a situation, movement through temporary wooden bridges will not be possible.

People from surrounding villages came to the striking farmers on Sunday to ask for directions, but instead of resolving the matter, tension prevailed. Farmer leader Sarwan Singh Pandher said that BJP tried to spoil our protest and capture the stage by sending its people.

Announcement of formation of 10 member committee

The villagers have also announced to form a 10-member committee of 30 villages to open the road. The people of 30 villages who have been facing trouble for so long are now preparing to knock the door of the High Court. A meeting has been called on Wednesday as well. Villagers may even decide to block the road to protest. Villagers can also approach the High Court.

Business and employment have come to a standstill due to farmers’ strike

According to the villagers, the farmers’ strike, which has been going on since February 13, has affected the business. Ambala has a big textile market. The traders themselves say that due to the strike, business is not being done as before.

Why are farmers protesting?

The farmers reached the Shambhu border on February 13. Farmers wanted to go to Delhi for legal guarantee of MSP on crops. But the Haryana police stopped the farmers here. Farmers were also on strike here. It has been 135 days since the farmers’ strike. But till date the central government has not listened to the farmers. Now the communication with the government has also completely stopped. Apart from MSP, farmers are demanding implementation of the Swaminathan Commission report. Farmer leader Sarvan Singh Pandher is constantly saying that the road is not blocked by us but by the police. He also said that the agitation will continue until the government accepts our demands.
