New Delhi: Indian Farmers Union (BHAKIU) leader Rakesh Tikait has said that the agitation will not return unless the Central Government agrees to several issues including MSP Guarantee Act, Electricity Act. There are differences of opinion among the farmers' organisations over his opinion. On the one hand, several farmers' organisations in Punjab have said that they will return home and the meeting of 40 organisations scheduled for Wednesday has also been cancelled. The Sanyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM) is scheduled to meet on December 4 to take a decision on the strategy ahead. But in the meantime, a large number of farmers are seen passing through singhu border and Ghazipur border. The number of farmers is decreasing on both the fronts.
Not only that, the anchor at Singhu border which has been going on for the last one year has also been closed now. The langar was being organised by Gurudwara Sahib Riverside California, USA. The organizers of the anchor have tied their belongings and returned to Punjab. These people have returned after loading their belongings in 5 trucks. Harpreet Singh, who belongs to the steering committee of the anchor, said that the anchor started from December 1, 2020, when it was only 5 days before the agitators reached the Singhu border. Now, we have decided to return to Punjab. But if the agitating farmers come back and need anchor service, we will come back again.
We hired 27 employees for anchoring at Singhu border, he added. A large number of volunteers were also involved in the work. Now that the farmers have won, we have now decided to go to the places where people need anchor service. Moreover, another anchor has now been closed and the organizers are all set to leave for Punjab. However, there are still many langar committees which are talking about staying on the borders of Delhi till the agitation continues. The return of langar committees to Punjab indicates that the number of agitators on the borders of Delhi has come down and people are slowly returning.
