Rajasthan’s farmers set out for Delhi on December 13,  2020 starting off the fourth front of the historical farmers’ struggle.

 

 

A large group of farmers began its march towards the capital city at 12 PM riding tractors and travelling via the Jaipur-Delhi highway. Similarly, farmers from Haryana have also prepared in anticipation for December 14’s Delhi Chalo march while state police have used cemented barricades at the border.

Nonetheless, peasants gathered under the banner of ‘Sanyukta Kisan Morcha’ at Shahjahanpur border in Rajasthan an hour before the march began.

 

 

Former MLAs from Rajasthan such as Amra Ram, Tara Singh Sidhu, Ranjit Raju, Kailash Yadav, Ramchandra and other farmer leaders led the march. Along with them, national farmers’ leaders such as Hannan Mollah, Ashok Dhawale, Medha Patkar, Pratibha Shinde, Raju Shetty and Yogendra Yadav were also present at the protest.

Other leaders such as Telangana’s V Venkataramiah, Kerala’s Krishna Prasad and Karnataka’s Kavita Kuruganti also promised to participate in the protest.

Meanwhile, farmers organisations in Haryana said that Prem Singh Gehlawat, Ramzan Chaudhary and other leaders have also arrived for the protest.

Regarding the Rajasthan march, the Sanyukta Kisan Morcha said, “This step has been taken in the direction of further strengthening the movement after a deadlock in the negotiations between the farmers associations and the central government. Farmers from all corners of Rajasthan and all districts of southern Haryana will start "Delhi Chalo" from Shahjahanpur border.”

Meanwhile, Yadav continues to cover the protest march on his Facebook Live.
