As many as 500 farmers will take part in a peaceful tractor march to Parliament every day during the winter session, the Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM) said on Tuesday.

The winter session of Parliament will be held from November 29 to December 23.

The SKM said that the marches will be conducted to mark one year of the protests against the three contentious farm laws.

“The SKM decided that from November 29 until the end of this Parliament session, 500 selected farmer volunteers will move every day to Parliament in tractor trollies peacefully and with full discipline, to assert their rights to protest in the national capital,” the SKM said.

This will be done to “‘increase the pressure” on the central government “to force it to concede the demands for which farmers across the country have launched a historic struggle”, it said.

The SKM also said that on 26 November, there will be huge mobilisations from Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Rajasthan at all the Delhi borders.

“All farm unions in the SKM will mobilize farmers in strength for this occasion. Huge public meetings will be held there (at borders) that day. Homage will be paid to more than 650 martyrs in this struggle so far,” it said.

It has called for massive maha panchayat in state capitals on the day as well.

Prior to this, Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) leader Rakesh Tikait had stated that the Centre has time till November 26 to repeal the farm laws.

“The central government has time till November 26, after that from November 27, farmers will reach the border at the movement sites around Delhi by tractors from villages and strengthen the tents at the movement and movement site with solid fortifications,” he tweeted.
