Amritsar: The Center not withdrawing three new agricultural laws, a farmer in Jind district of Haryana destroyed a wheat crop standing on his two acres of land by driving a tractor. Ram Mehar, a resident of Gulkani village in Jind district, reached his farm on Sunday with a tractor and ran a tractor on a two-acre crop.
During this time, in addition to the women of Ram Mehar's family, a large number of farmers also reached the farm. Ram Mehar, a ten-acre farmer, told the media that if I take the crop towards ripening, then the expenditure will increase and there is no guarantee of getting the price right. He said that he does not have any means to store the crop. Ram Mehr said that it is better to destroy the crop before it is ripe so that the damage can be avoided and if the crop is burned when it is ripe, then there will be air pollution and the fertility of the land will also be lost. Also, the burning of the remains will come under the legal purview of the government.
Meanwhile, in view of the upcoming wheat crop season, now farmers will come on strike in the shifts on the movement being done on the Khatkad toll. Every day a strategy has been set to come on a dharna of farmers of 15 villages. District President of Bhakiyu, Gurnam Singh Chadhuni also participated in the dharna. Chadhuni said that till these laws are not withdrawn, the picketing will not end.
