Chandigarh: Sarwan Singh Pandher, leader of the farmers gathered at Shambhu border in preparation for the march to Delhi for their demands, has told the central government that they are protesting peacefully. They should be allowed to go towards Delhi. Pandher said on Wednesday that we have told the government that you can kill us but do not torture the farmers. We request the Prime Minister to come forward and end this protest by announcing a law on MSP guarantee for farmers.

The government will not forgive the country – Pandher

Sarwan Singh Pandher said that paramilitary forces are deployed in the villages of Haryana to stop us. What crime have we committed? The country will not forgive such a government. We never thought that the powers that be would oppress us like this. Pandher told PM Modi to please protect the Constitution and let us go towards Delhi peacefully, this is our right.

We tried our best – Pandher

On today’s ‘Delhi Chalo’ march, farmer leader Sarwan Singh Pandher said that we tried our best. We attended the meetings, every point was discussed and now the decision has to be taken by the central government. We will demonstrate peacefully. The Prime Minister should come forward and accept our demands. Rs 1.5-2 lakh crore is not a huge amount. We should be allowed to remove these obstacles and march towards Delhi.

Center had given this proposal

Let us inform that after the failure of four rounds of talks with the Center regarding legal guarantee on Minimum Support Price (MSP) for crops, the protesting farmers are ready to start their march again today from two places on the Punjab-Haryana border. In the fourth round of talks with farmer leaders, a committee of three Union ministers on Sunday had proposed that after striking an agreement with farmers, government agencies would buy pulses, maize and cotton at MSP for five years. But, farmer leaders rejected this proposal.
