The farmers are preparing for the tractor procession on the Republic Day. Meanwhile, the farmers’ organization Bharatiya Kisan Union also announced in March that it would impose fines on tractors. So far, the agency has imposed fines in two villages in Punjab, media reports said. People from other villages affiliated to the union have also been warned not to take part in the tractor march.
Although a fine of Rs 2,100 has been imposed on Valarhedi village in Sangrur, Punjab, Mogar Roga Kalan will be fined Rs 1,200 from those who do not want to go on a Republic Day tractor walk. The announcement was made in a struggle from Gurudwara village in the presence of leaders of the Indian Kisan Union (Rajewal) group. It says a family that does not join in March will be fined Rs 2,100. The controversial announcement is alleged to have been made by Jasbar Singh, Avtar Singh and Bhupendra Singh in the presence of Indian Farmers Union president (Rajewal), local residents.
The announcement said that it was unanimously decided that those who did not want to take part in the march would have to pay Rs 2,100. You can consider it a penalty or contribution for diesel expenses but the decision is final. BKK leaders further said that those who do not take part in the march will not get any support from the farmers’ union in the future.
I tell you that there are 60,000 houses in Bhallahari village which will send hundreds of tractors for March. At the same time, the farmers of Mogar Ruk Kalan village have been asked to pay Rs 100 per acre for tractor hiking. Farmer leader Gurnam Singh said, “We want to make the tractor march a success by joining the march and we are expecting more than 60 tractors from this village.”
Gurnam Singh said those who are refusing will have to pay Rs 1,200. Meanwhile, volunteers are encouraging a large number of people to join the march. At least one person from each family has been asked to support the march. In many villages of Punjab, women are being trained to drive tractors. It can be inferred from the training of women that there is so much enthusiasm among the farmers for this tractor hike.
