Farmer unions announce nationwide rail roko despite PM Modi’s outreach
Protesting farmer unions are planning to intensify their agitation against the new farm laws. They have announced a four-hour nationwide rail roko on the 18th of February. In a statement, Samyukt Kisan Morcha has also mentioned that toll collection will not be allowed in Rajasthan from tomorrow.
Earlier, Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Lok Sabha made an appeal to the farmers to give the new farm bills a chance. He claimed that the farmers are being misled. However, despite PM Modi’s constant appeals, the agitating farmers have decided to intensify their protest.
