Mumbai: The Kisan Andolan Committee said on Saturday that the government was acting in a dictatorial manner by giving the notice to vacate the Ghazipur border.
“The notice given by the District Magistrate is incorrect. We will respond to it when the time is right. The government is acting in a dictatorial manner by issuing notices despite the Supreme Court’s order that farmers can continue their agitation,” said Jagtar Singh Bajwa, spokesperson of Kisan Andolan Committee, Ghazipur Border.
He said, “Thousands of farmers are reaching the border of Ghazipur. It is difficult to tell how many farmers are presently on the border. If the government feels that they will be able to harass us, then they are wrong.”
Meanwhile, farmers continued their agitation on the Ghazipur border against three controversial agricultural laws.
Farmers, along with Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) leader Rakesh Tikait, have been protesting at the Ghazipur border even after the Ghaziabad District Administration on Thursday ordered them to vacate the area. The protesting farmers say that they will go back to their homes only after their demands are met.
