Hundreds of farmers across Haryana move to rejoin Singhu, Ghazipur, Tikri protest sites

The emotional appeal of Bhartiya Kisan Union leader Rakesh Tikait has given a ‘fuel’ to farmers’ agitation which witnessed a fall in numbers following the Red Fort incident during the January 26 tractor parade.

Hundreds of farmers from Hisar, Bhiwani, Kaithal, Jind, Sonepat and Panipat districts rejoined the protest sites at Singhu, Ghazipur and Tikri borders with enthusiasm.

“The farmers have been coming to Tikri from various villages of Rohtak and Jind districts since last night. Rumours of farmers going back are being spread by the BJP supporters to weaken the agitation,” said Virender Hooda, a farmer leader camping at Tikri.

“Tikait episode at Ghazipur border has created a sense of sympathy among the people of Haryana hence it is the main reason behind the returning of farmers to the protest sites,” said a farmer leader.

As the video of Rakesh Tikait went viral on the social media, the farmers in Kungar village of Hisar district, Kandela of Jind district started gathering in their respective villages.
