Despite the current stalemate between the Center and Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM) over outstanding requests, farmers camping in Tikri are purchasing crackers and potash powder from the surrounding areas to make their return trip memorable.

They are confident that the government will soon accept outstanding requests as well. “Many farmers have already bought crackers and potash powder to celebrate the victory. Since crackers are more expensive, the majority of them buy potash powder in Bahadurgarh. We are ready to celebrate and look forward to SKM’s decision, ”said Harminder Singh, a protester, adding that the government is likely to take a soft stance on their pending demands before the next SKM meeting on December 7.

Always united & enthusiastic

The farmers are still united and full of enthusiasm as they were at the start of the turmoil. The government should therefore accept our pending requests without further delay. —Baldev Singh, protester

Another farmer said a small amount of potash powder as well as a gun-like device was sold for Rs 400 in Bahadurgarh. “In addition, potash powder is more suitable because it not only makes a loud noise but also prevents the possibility of any fire. We will use it during the victory procession on our way to Punjab from Tikri.

Sangrur’s Gurpreet Singh, however, said large numbers of farmers carrying flowers and crackers would reach Tikri to be part of the victory parade soon after SKM’s decision to return home.

Meanwhile, to show their strength and put pressure on the Center and the State to accept their pending demands, the farmers organized a tractor march on a 10 km stretch from Kisan Chowk to Bahadurgarh in Tikri. “The march was aimed at making the Center understand that we are still united (…) therefore, it should accept our pending demands without testing our patience and strength,” said Baldev Singh, another protester. .
