This is one of the visible results of the struggle of the farmers of Punjab that not a single toll plaza is taking toll tax.

- Farmers’ Movement completes 6 months of historical, peaceful protests at Delhi’s borders – Strong nationwide response to SKM’s call >>>
Farmers and labourers are going on peaceful demonstrations at more than 100 places in Punjab – including toll plazas, shopping malls, petrol pumps and other places. This fight will continue till the demands of the farmers are met.
The farmers’ movement on the borders of Delhi completed 6 months. When the farmers were heading towards Delhi last November, they had arrangements of at least 6 months. Now the struggle is getting stronger and longer, keeping in mind this fact, that the farmers and the Samyukta Kisan Morcha have also made proper arrangements here. The Golden Hut on the Singhu Border was previously serviced with water, food and lodging facilities. Now quintals of milk are being served here every day.
Along with this, other social welfare organizations have also made arrangements for living, food, medical and other essential services for the farmers on the borders of Delhi. Samyukta Kisan Morcha greets all the organizations and allies who have supported the farmers movement in any form and have provided facilities to the farmers. This farmers’ movement is a long battle.
By not withdrawing these laws, the Central Government is tasting the patience of the farmers by entangling them in other issues, but the constant enthusiasm of the farmers has forced the government to hold the laws a few times. In the coming times, this fight will also get stronger and the government will have to repeal the laws.
