Anti-Farm Laws Protest: Leaders of Farmers’ Union on hunger strike

GG News Bureau

New Delhi, 14 December.

The head of 32 farmer unions began a hunger strike from 8 a.m. today as their protest against the new agriculture laws entered 19th day. Hunger strike is a part of farmers’ plan to make their agitation against the farm laws more intense.

Farmers’ leader Gurnam Singh Chaduni while addressing a press conference on Sunday said that the leaders will be on a hunger strike at their own respective places.

However leaders of Bhartiya Kisan Union (Ekta Ugrahan) have decided to keep themselves away from the hunger strike.

In support of the farmers’ cause, Delhi Chief minister Arvind Kejriwal is also on a hunger strike. He took to Twitter to show his solidarity with farmers and wrote ” It is good for health to observe fast. Please fast for our farmer brothers from wherever you are. Pray for the success of their struggle. At the end farmers will emerge as winners.”

Taking to Twitter, Arvind Kejriwal also alleged the Chief Minister of Punjab Captain Amarinder Singh of selling the protest of farmers, in order to save his son from the case of ED.
