NEW DELHI– Samyukta Kissan Morcha, the joint leadership of farm unions, on wednesday gave a four-hour nationwide ‘rail rako’ (railway blockade) call for February 18, a measure to escalate the current agitation against the pro-corporate agri-reforms enacted by the Modi government.
According to the schedule announced by the Morcha, “Rail roko programme will be held on February 18 from 12 noon to 4 pm across the country”.
The statement called for disobeying toll collection in Rajasthan saying, “all road toll plazas in Rajasthan will be made toll free”.
Furthermore, the Morcha called for a candle march, Mashaal juloos (torch rally ) and other programmes on February 14 across the country to remember “the sacrifice of the martyred soldiers in the Pulwama attack”.
On February 16, the statement said, the farmers will show solidarity throughout the country on the birth anniversary of Chhotu Ram, a pro-Independence leader from Jaat community.
