Banyani (Rohtak): Contrary to the Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar’s claim that state farmers are not supporting the ongoing agitation on Delhi border against three agriculture bills, the farmers from his own native village claim that they stand strongly with the Punjab farmers.

Notably, CM Khattar had dubbed the ongoing agitation in Haryana-Delhi borders against three agriculture laws, a politically motivated movement by Punjab farmers.

Expressing solidarity with Punjab farmers, Lal Chand Sikka, a farmer from Banyani village that their identity of being a farmer succeeds their caste and region identity.

“We stand with Punjab farmers who are camping on borders with their family members. The center government should speed up to address their grievances”, Sikka said.

Baldev Raj, a farmer who tills the agriculture land in Banyani owned by family members of CM Khattar said that only a farmer understands the pain of another farmer and his village farmers were protesting Punjab farmers.

Reacting to CM Khattar’s statement that state farmers were not in the protest, Baldev Raj said that he does not support the statement and stands strongly with the farmers. “Whatever their demand is should be met immediately”, he stressed.

Dinesh Kumar, who also tills the agricultural land owned by CM Khattar’s family, said that a farmer’s life is full of hardships as sometimes he struggles for irrigation water and other times he struggles for payment of his crops. “Keeping empathy with the protesting farmers, we stand by Punjab farmers and would support them with every possible means”, he added.

Kanwal Singh, another farmer claimed that some of the farmers have already departed to support the protesters while many like him were busy tending the agriculture works. “Farmers like me want to go to protest sites but due to compulsion of work in agriculture fields, we can’t go but we support them wholeheartedly”, he added.
