The Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM) will hold an internal meeting on Saturday to discuss what to do after the Delhi Police removed the barricades at the Ghazipur and Tikri border protest sites. The barricades are likely to be removed at Singhu border soon too.
The SKM, a coalition of over forty farmers' unions, will discuss how to respond and the steps to be taken after the blockades were removed on Friday, as per sources. The meeting will be held at Singhu border.
Reacting to the police's action, the Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) released a statement. Signed off by media in-charge Dharmendra Malik, the statement read, "There is no confusion about the status at Ghazipur border. After the police removed the barricades at Ghazipur border, rumours have been circulating. In this regard, the BKU wants to make it clear that the protest will continue as it is. There is no change. A large number of farmers are present at the Ghazipur border."
Further, the statement said, "The road was blocked by the police after [tractor rally on] January 26. The Delhi Police is now correcting its mistake after our affidavit in the Supreme Court."
The BKU also appealed to farmers to strengthen their movement against the Centre's contentious farm laws by reaching the protest site at Ghazipur border.
"Every day there is a conspiracy against the movement. We have to be ready against every conspiracy," the statement concluded.
