New Delhi, March 01, 2021: Farmer’s protests have continued for more than a 100 days on the Singhu border of Delhi-Haryana, demanding the repeal of the three central agricultural laws. Thousands of farmers have gathered at the Tikri, Ghazipur, and Shahjahanpur border, along with the Singhu border, on Monday and they are determined to demand the repeal of the agricultural laws. Meanwhile, the official statement of the leaders of the Kisan Morcha has also come in view of the decision of the Khap Panchayats to sell 100 rupees a liter of milk. The Kisan Morcha said, “We have nothing to do with the decision of selling milk at Rs 100 a kg.” The leaders of the United Front, who are leading the peasant movement, said, “Wrongful claims are being made, the farmers need not be influenced by them and should ignore it.”

On the question of the rise of the price of milk, Kisan Morcha says that no such announcement has been made on their behalf.

Significantly, the Khap Panchayats and farmers in Haryana, Hisar, and Jind had decided to sell milk at Rs 100 per kg. It was also said that the general public will get milk at the old price, while the cooperatives will be charged 100 rupees in lieu of one liter of milk.

A message on social media, in the name of Kisan Morcha, is gaining viral attention and clarification is being given in this context that this message is wrong. The farmers are requested to ignore such messages.
