Karnal (Haryana) [India], September 6 (ANI): Ahead of farmers' Mahapanchayat against police lathi-charge on farmers on August 28, Haryana Bharatiya Kisan Union Chief Gurnam Singh Charuni said that the Panchayat will continue as scheduled.
The farmer leaders met with the Karnal administration today to discuss the Karnal Mahapanchayat on September 7 and the gherao of the mini secretariat.
"No outcome me from the meeting with Karnal administration. We will go ahead with our Panchayat," Singh said.
Further, claiming that the administration is not ready to cooperate, Singh said, "They said that they will stop us, but we are ready to bear whatever they bring to us. The administration is not ready to listen to us or to cooperate with us at all."
"Sector 144 is the government doing its own will; it is like they want to beat us, but do not want to let us cry either. At least let us cry," he added
The Samyukta Kisan Morcha, which is heading the farmers' agitation against three farm laws, has given a call for gherao of the secretariat demanding registration of an FIR against those officers who had allegedly ordered a lathi charge on agitators during their protest against a BJP event in Karnal on August 28.
