Dilli Chalo: Jathedar Hawara calls upon Punjab masses to join farmers’ march towards Delhi

CHANDIGARH, Punjab—The Sarbat Khalsa appointed Akal Takht Jathedar Bhai Jagtar Singh Hawara has called upon the Punjab masses to join farmers’ march towards Delhi aimed at drawing intention attention towards their plight. Notably, the farmers of Punjab are set to march towards Delhi on November 26 and 27.

“The farmer class holds immense respect in the society of India due to its hard work. We have always stood for the appreciation of social honor and financial status of this hard-working class and will keep on doing so in future also,” said Jathedar Hawara in a letter addressed to the Punjab masses.

“History is evident that the residents of Punjab have always raised voice against the atrocities, injustice and coercion while following the path enlightened by Guru Nanak Sahib and Guru Gobind Singh Ji,” he writes in the letter.

“At present, it is our moral duty to support the struggle of farmers as the Indian state is all set to ruin their existence,” he wrote while congratulating the farmers on their successful journey against these draconian farm laws till date.

Jathedar Hawara has also suggested the farmer leaders to beware of the cheap tactics often used by states to torpedo struggles. “The governments often use several tools to torpedo struggles by creating differences between the leaders or by using stick and carrot approach but you should remain aware of these tactics till victory,” he wrote in letter.

“I am the son of a farmer so I recognize the pain of this issue. I can’t join your struggle physically but I am spiritually with you. I am happy that almost every section of Punjab’s society is supporting your struggle day and night,” he wrote in address to the struggling farmers.   

Jathedar Jagtar Singh Hawara is currently lodged in the Tihar jail of India’s national capital Delhi. He is serving life sentence for his role in the assassination former Punjab CM Beant “Singh” who had unleashed massacre of innocent Sikh youths in Punjab after “winning” one sided assembly elections in 1992. These elections were boycotted by all the political parties of Punjab except Congress.
