The 52-day-old farmers’ agitation on the outskirts of Delhi is quick reaching its denouement. As farmers began leaving the dharna websites in Shahjahanpur, Singhu and Tikri borders, and in addition in Ghazipur, the curtain is starting to fall on a leaderless and directionless agitation, that was marred by anti-national parts who dishonoured our nationwide flag. Just a few supporters of Bharatiya Kisan Union chief Rakesh Tikait are sitting on the dharna website, whereas his brother Naresh Tikait has withdrawn from the agitation. The extra district Justice of the Peace of Ghaziabad issued a discover to Tikait below Part 133 of IPC to depart the dharna website instantly, however Tikait is adamant.
The complete Ghazipur border space has been sealed off by UP police, water and electrical energy provide have been minimize and non permanent bogs have been eliminated. The free ‘langars’ are over. Delhi Police and UP Police are guarding the border from each side, and Speedy Motion Power has been deployed.
On Thursday night, BKU chief Rakesh Tikait created a drama of types in full glare of the cameras. He first threatened there could be firing if his supporters had been forcibly evicted, he additionally mentioned, he would hold himself if police tried to take away him forcibly. Quickly after his speech, Tikait got here down the dais and, sitting on the bottom, he began sobbing in entrance of mediapersons and police officers, who had been watching aghast. His brother, Naresh Tikait, had, by then, taken away most of his supporters saying that the panchayat has known as off the protest. Since Rakesh Tikait used to talk to media each day throughout the agitation, it was being incorrectly assumed that he was the chief, whereas the precise management lies within the fingers of his brother, who has the backing of the panchayats in western UP.
Already, Delhi Police has filed case of sedition towards greater than 35 farmer leaders for the mayhem that was precipitated on January 26. The arrest of farmer leaders is imminent, and so they have been issued summons by police on Friday. Police motion started on Wednesday night time when the UP police uprooted the tents of farmers squatting in Baghpat close to Meerut, and evicted farmers who had been blocking the Delhi-Saharanpur freeway for the final 40 days.
Farmers’ protests have additionally began folding up in Saharanpur on Rajasthan-Haryana border, the place native villagers threatened the squatters to maneuver out or face motion. The native villagers had been dealing with issues for the final two months because of this dharna. Protests folded up at Atoha in Palwal on the Delhi-Agra freeway, and the crowds of farmers and their supporters have already began thinning at Tikri and Singhu border factors.
Many of the outdated and skilled farmers who had been a part of these protests, turned disillusioned when rioters insulted the nationwide tricolour on the historic Purple Fort on Republic Day. Villagers in Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh are offended over the Purple Fort incident and are blaming the disparate management for inflicting this to occur.
On the Singhu border, the main target of farmers’ agitation, native villagers who had been extending assist to the farmers, on Thursday got here to the protest website holding tricolour flag and demanded that the farmers should depart. They demanded that the Delhi-Haryana border be reopened and automobiles be allowed to maneuver on nationwide freeway. Many of the villagers informed India TV that that they had supported the farmers to start with, however violence and insult to nationwide honour has no place in such an agitation.
The Samyukta Kisan Morcha, the umbrella of all farmers’ outfits, on Thursday mentioned that the dharna would proceed, come what might. However the physique language of farmer leaders clearly confirmed that they’re now a upset lot as a result of the crowds are scaling down. Just a few tractors had been seen on Singhu border, in comparison with hundreds of tractors that had assembled on the eve of Republic Day.
On the Masani Barrage in Rewari, Haryana, hundreds of farmers who had been sitting on dharna have left the protest website. After watching visuals of anti-national parts insulting the nationwide flag on the Purple Fort, enraged villagers got here to the protest website and requested the squatting farmers to depart instantly. Villagers from 20 close by villages assembled in a panchayat and gave the farmers 24 hours’ ultimatum to depart the protest website. India TV reporter went to Masani Barrage and located all of the tents, barricades and langars eliminated.
The underside line on this sordid saga is that this. Farmer leaders and their supporters have now realized that they’ve misplaced public sympathy after the January 26 mayhem. The thinning of crowds at Tikri and Singhu borders clearly present that the farmers and their family members have already left for his or her properties, disillusioned with a divided and directionless management.
Think about the anger of people that had been offering milk, fruits, greens, grains and water to the protesting farmers for the final two months, however now they’re unwilling even to serve water. They’re, in any case, patriots who won’t ever countenance any insult to nationwide flag and honour. Even the farmers who had been sitting on dharna are offended over no matter occurred on January 26. That is the explanation why the farmers left for his or her properties in disgust. Nonetheless, there are leaders who’re unwilling to confess their errors. I had already mentioned that these leaders should apologize to the nation and droop their agitation like Mahatma Gandhi did after the Chauri Chaura incident.
The farmer leaders have misplaced the belief of the folks of India. Many of the countrymen are unhappy and damage. Individuals are sad as a result of the agitation someplace misplaced its manner when the nationwide flag was insulted and the nationwide heritage was desecrated.
Individuals are offended that hoodlums posing as farmers attacked policemen with rushing tractors with the intent to crush them to demise, they attacked them with swords with the intent to maim them. Individuals are offended as a result of already the Supreme Court docket has stayed the implementation of the three farm legal guidelines, and the Centre had supplied to remain these legal guidelines for one and a half years, and but the farmer leaders wished to show their power. They rejected all appeals to postpone their tractor rally on Republic Day, a day when all the nation celebrates.
Individuals are offended as a result of the farmer leaders had been deviously planning to increase their tractor rally and take their supporters proper as much as Parliament with the intent to gherao the august Home, with the intention to pressure the federal government to bend. Individuals are offended as a result of these leaders, claiming to guide the farmers, had been absent, when their supporters had been hurling stones, making an attempt to crush policemen with tractors and brandishing swords. These leaders now declare that the disrupters weren’t farmers.
Until the time Deep Sidhu, Satnam Singh Pannu and Sarwan Singh Pander had been sitting with them on dharma, they had been kisans, and now that they’ve insulted nationwide honour, they’re being named as miscreants.
Individuals are offended as a result of the farmer leaders who had been claiming to symbolize the vast majority of the folks of India, are actually giving lame excuses that lots of their supporters didn’t hearken to their orders. The bitter reality is that the nation has now realized that rioters and anti-social parts had been companions of those so-called farmer leaders, and the leaders had been utilizing them to exert stress on the federal government.
Now that the leaders stand uncovered, they’re now making an attempt to distance themselves from these rioters and hoodlums. However I don’t suppose that this can be attainable any extra, as a result of the farmers, who had been sitting on peaceable dharna towards the farm legal guidelines and had been contemplating them as their leaders, have now misplaced all belief and respect for them. It’s now time for the farmer leaders to do penance and name off an agitation that has ceased to exist on the bottom.
