    Farmer's announce for R-Day Tractor Parade, Global Embarrassment for New Delhi

    The farmers, on seeing the Hindu Nationalist Government stance over a strong refusal of repealing farm law, have increased their resentment and now the chances of conflicts have also been increasing. Deep into the continuing demonstrations, the Naujawan Bharat Farmers Organization is expected to launch induction as from 13 January to take onboard 4,000 volunteers for the tractor rally scheduled for 26 January with an objective of preserving law and order. The farmers have already made it abundantly clear that they are going to lift the security barrier in their way for the tractor rally on R-Day. This announcement of farmers is increasing the problem for the government.

    Thousands of farmers have been resisting and demonstrating against the three contentious agricultural regulations for more than two months on the outskirts of the capital of India. In November 2020, water cannons were used as they reached the frontier of the capital and the Haryana state police perhaps fired some lactation gas shells on the agitator. 

    Likewise, the founder of this blog EveryCornerAStory.com, Puneet Bawa, has been concerned of New Delhi’s situation and blamed the apathy & ignorance of the Modi Govt that has led over 60 farmers to lose their lives. Moreover, he depicted the contention as a Human Rights violation with armed forces working on the order of Hindu Nationalist Government led by Narendra Modi to strike protesters with tear-gas, underlying Modi’s aim to promote economic interests of its imperialist colleagues.

    Lately, the eighth round of talks between the Centre and the farmer unions on January 7 appeared heading nowhere as the Centre ruled out repealing the controversial laws while the farmer leaders said they are ready to fight till death and their 'ghar waapsi' will happen only after 'law waapsi'. On the 26th January, when the tanks will go down on Rajpath, a farmer's leader Rakesh Tikait said that farmers protesting on the Delhi borders will attempt their own Republic Day "with their tractors to go" into the national capital alongside the tanks of an army. 

    Likewise another leader, Gurnam Singh Chadhuni, President, Bakiu, Haryana stated that “the farmers are going to arrive from Punjab, Haryana, UP, Uttarakhand, Rajasthan and elsewhere. Regardless of how much the government troops, the farmer would not hesitate. Anything can pass through the barricades, and the farmers cannot avoid every rung, bullet or any other attempt”

    Seeing the uprising, the paramilitary force has been asked by Hindu Nationalist Government to be stationed 24 hours a day at the respective borders around the capital, where the protests have been going on.  Since farmers have declared their participation in the Republic Day Parade, protection and security is seemingly being tightened with assurance of nobody trying to get out of there. 

    On the other hand, the Supreme Court was asked by the Center to prevent the planned farmer's march or some other kind of demonstration aimed at disturbing Republic Day gatherings and celebrations on 26 January. Earlier that day, the Supreme Court pulled up the Center and proclaimed its handling to be 'highly disillusioned' with the course of the negotiations, and formed a committee chaired by the former Chief Justice of India to tackle the impasse. The supreme Court refused to grant the Center more time to seek options in a friendly settlement arguing that it had already given the government "long rope" to the degree to which the implementation of the controversial law was in place.
