Farmers have been standing with tractor trolley at Shambhu border for two days. Today is the third day of the farmers' 'Dilli Chalo' march. Farmer leader Jagjit Singh Dallewal has said that a team of three Union ministers will meet again with farmer leaders on Thursday evening on their various demands. After two such meetings held on February 8 and 12 remained inconclusive, the Center invited farmer leaders for a third round of talks.

Of course kill us, but accept our demands: Farmer leader Shravan Singh Pandher

General Secretary of Punjab Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Samiti, Shravan Singh Pandher said that bullets are being fired on us. We would like to find some solution to the problem that is going on today. Our farmer leader is being arrested, the government wants to crush the farmer movement under its feet. Today we will go to the meeting in a completely positive mood and we would like to find some solution. He said that this movement has become an international movement. BJP is working to divide the entire country in the name of religion. We say that Congress is equally guilty. Our people were standing peacefully. But still smoke was being fired on us. If their objective is achieved by killing us then it is fine. Kill us. But please accept our demands. We just appeal to Prime Minister Modi and his ministers to find a solution for the farmers by talking to them.
