केंद्र सरकार को 26 नवंबर तक का समय है, उसके बाद 27 नवंबर से किसान गांवों से ट्रैक्टरों से दिल्ली के चारों तरफ आंदोलन स्थलों पर बॉर्डर पर पहुंचेगा और पक्की किलेबंदी के साथ आंदोलन और आन्दोलन स्थल पर तंबूओं को मजबूत करेगा।#FarmersProtestAdvertisement

In an earlier statement, the Farm Union Leader Tikait said they would turn the government offices across the country into “Galla Mandi” if the Government tried to remove farmers from borders; this statement came in reaction after the Government decided to remove barricades from the protest site.
Since the three farm laws rolled out, farmers all across the country, especially from Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, and Haryana, have been protesting to withdraw them; which are :
(1) The Farmers Produce Trade & Commerce (Facilitation and Promotion) Act.
(2) The Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act makes provisions to remove items such as cereals and pulses from the list of essential commodities, to attract foreign direct investment to the sector.
(3) Agreement of Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, Farmers (Empowerment and Protection).
The farmers are worried that these farm laws would take away the Minimum Support System and they would become the pawns of Big Corporations.
