Singhu Border: No access to water, toilets for farmers
NEW DELHI: A four-to-five-feet wide concrete wall – built by Delhi Police – now runs across the Delhi-Chandigarh national highway, cutting off the presters of Samyukta Kisan Morcha from the capital.
新德里：德里警方修建了一堵4 - 5英尺宽的混凝土墙，横亘在德里-昌迪加尔国道上，阻止者进入首都。
Behind this wall are five layers of barricades in a zone of about 1.5km, denying the farmers access to two dozen mobile toilet vans and Delhi Jal Board water t kers.
The presters are disappointed, but not despairing. “We are farmers. We will bore tubewells if the need arises. The go nment should not think that it will intimidate us. We will not go back to our villages without securing the future of our children,” said Kuljit Singh, a farmer from Pati.
Only Haryana t kers for water
A BKU volunteer from Kaithal, Manjit Dhillon, said the fortification had been carried not to prevent farmers from going towards Delhi but to cut off all the support from the Delhi side. “Earlier, many water t kers used to come from that side of the road but now we are dependent only on t kers from Haryana. Many are buying packaged water bottles,” he said. Some farmers are relying on RO water plants set up by Khalsa Aid to fill 20-litre jerry cans for the tents. Many establishments along the highway are also hel them with water.
While Delhi Police took the steps after the Republic Day mayhem during the farmers’ tractor parade, BKU leader Rakesh Tikait said the intense fortification of the borders and closing down of roads was a strategy to turn locals ag inst farmers. “It is a well-thought-out plan on the part of Delhi Police and the Centre to seal the borders because that will only inconvenience the public, which they will use to mobilise them ag inst us,” Tikait said on Tuesday.
They are not farmers.... real farmers commit suicide.they are the broker and commission agents who earn out of the distress of real farmers
Help Your Society
farmers go back to fields where you belong. all these years, eiher you kept quiet or avoided tax but now you are showing up prest for what ?
This is d step taken by d gt. Recalling d horror video clips of 26th Jan, these si called Kissans had behaved n injured our own people, dest yed national assets, nit even enemy will do.
They want to prest.. ok, fine. but then look at their demands. we need give star treatment like nice cushioned mattress, very good food including drinks, pizza, non veg, etc. recreation thru DJ. u guys on prest or is it a joke? India has understood these ch po itical tactics to oppose Modiji.
I am unable to sympathize with these so-called farmers. The mayhem they created on Republic day was very bad. Still the go nment said that it is willing to put farm laws on hold for 18 months. Due to stubborness, the so-called farmers are not accepting this offer from the go nment.
Go Home use your toilets.
Very good.They are not farmers but supporters of Anti Nationals who "shamed my Motherland" on Republic Day strip the National Flag and Ra India.

Till then in the interest of everyone the agitation to be stopped.
it's an ISI conspiracy to cause riot.
the real farmer gets nothing from this prest
Real farmers have not guts to destroy public property
Very good. Police must be tough with these hoodlum elements. Local people should boycott these elements and anarchists.
Violent behaviour in the name of prests has no place in de acy and you can't compn now.
The new farm rules is good for progress. People always fear from change, that's a human nature but after all the farming rules are good. It may required few amendment for which gov is ready. These are middle man who will have much loss after new farming bill.
Well done Delhi Police!
Call them presters not farmers. You are insulting all the farmers in India by calling these goons as farmers...
