The farmers are frozen on the Singhu border. It is here that they have their food and drink arrangements.

  • Farmers’ groups included youth who have been winners of tractor competitions and have performed a variety of stunts on tractors.
  • The Sant Nirankari Ashram opened its fields to the farmers, from where the batch of thousands of farmers proceeded bypassing the highway.

The second day of the peasant movement was very exciting. With the slogan of ‘Chalo Delhi’, the farmers were successful in fulfilling the objective of traveling to Delhi on the second day of the movement. To reach the Delhi border, these peasants had to cross eight large barricades and move forward, breaking the siege of security forces. But all this was done so systematically that all the administration’s tactics failed to stop the farmers.

Perhaps this is the first time in the history of independent India that the administration itself has dug roads to stop the agitators. Normally, the people who are agitating are accused of causing damage to government property, but in this movement, the government itself is facing this charge. Farmers from Punjab and Haryana knew that the administration would do everything possible to stop them. So they had already prepared to deal with it. Farmers’ groups included youth who have been the winners of tractor competitions and have been performing various types of stunt tractors. For these youngsters it was a matter of few minutes to clear the heavy barricades with the help of tractor.

The Delhi Police had barricaded in three layers on the Singhu border.  At the forefront were barbed wire.  The trucks were then fitted like barricades.

Therefore, where the administration had closed the roads with heavy boulders and iron barricades, the way of getting out of the farmers also became very easy with the help of these youths. Constant input from the local people was also an important part of the farmers’ strategy. Wherever the administration blocked the highway with the deployment of large barricades and security forces, the agitators bypassed the local farmers with the help of local farmers, and through the fields adjoining the highway, the farmers’ groups proceeded. Sant Nirankari Ashram, near Samalkha, opened its fields to the farmers, from where the batch of thousands of farmers proceeded bypassing the highway.

Local police also ran water canons on the farmers at many places throughout this route, but even after this, the pace of the farmers moving forward could not be reduced significantly. All the things needed to move forward, the farmers got all the things with them. For example, with the farmers, not only the experts to break the barricade, but many mechanics were also involved so that in case of damage to any vehicle, it can be repaired immediately. Not only this, the doctors of the agitating farmers were involved even in the doctors who could handle the situation when the medical emergency came.

Dr Dharmveer Bharti, who was an MP from Aam Aadmi Party, was also involved in this batch of farmers who have been giving free medical advice to agitating farmers for the last two days. With a stethoscope around his neck and some essential medicines in his pocket, Dr. Gandhi has examined dozens of farmers during this movement. Is it correct to approach a doctor from Corona in such a big movement?

Farmers are preparing for a big movement in Delhi.  For this, they are carrying gas cylinders and stoves on tractors.

In response to this question, he says, ‘The fear of corona is felt as long as the dough is in the house and the salary or pension comes in the house. The day the dough runs out or the pension stops, the fear of corona ends. Dr. Gandhi adds, “We are taking care of whatever is necessary to protect the corona. We all have masks. Now, on the pretext of Corona, which wants to stop farmers from coming to Delhi, it is utterly meaningless. When the Prime Minister himself goes to address a crowd of thousands at an election rally in Bihar, then why don’t these people worry about Corona? We have reached Delhi with full caution and now we will return from here only to speak our words.

By the second evening of the movement, hundreds of tractors and other carts of farmers had reached the Singhu border in Delhi. After reaching here, there was a three-to-four confrontation between the security forces and the farmers, in which water cannon and tear gas shells were fired by the police and then stones were also fired from both the ends, due to which some farmers were also hurt. But this situation soon came under control and then the farmers sat on the Indus border with an anchor.

The farmers say that they are not going to return until this law is withdrawn.

Although by this time, farmers had been allowed to enter Delhi, but now the farmers opted to stay on the highway instead of entering Delhi. Farmer leader Gurnam Singh Chadhuni says, ‘Farmer brothers of Punjab do not want us to go to Delhi and be imprisoned in some corner, so it was decided to stop here. This also happened because at first the government dug up roads to stop us so that we could not reach Delhi. When we reached Delhi, what does it mean to give permission now? Now we too will work in our ways. We have arrived here not to surround Delhi but to encircle Delhi. ‘Should the’ Chalo Delhi ‘movement of farmers be considered successful with the arrival of Delhi?

In response to this question, Gurnam Singh Chadhuni says, ‘The slogan was to reach Delhi and we reached it even though the government had put a lot of effort to stop us. From this perspective, the movement has been successful. But the real success of this movement is when these black laws made for corporate interests are repealed. We have come here with the same objective and the government should keep in mind that we have not come at all to return before this.
