Farmers associated with the Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) spearheading the protests against the three agricultural bills that received President Ram Nath Kovind’s assent on Sunday have been putting up posters asking leaders of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Jannayak Janta Party (JJP) alliance to stay away.

In Baroula village, nearly a dozen farmers associated with the union called for a “complete boycott” of the parties.

“We won’t allow the entry of leaders from the ruling government to enter our village till our demands are met. We also want proper and timely procurement of paddy,” said Hardev Singh, BKU member and local resident.

He was among the farmers who had put up a poster near the Panchayat Ghar.

Earlier on Friday, during the Bharat Bandh, farmers of Anandpur Jalbera village had banned the politicians’ entry.

“If our demand to scrap the three farm bills is met, we will not just allow the politicians to enter our villages, we will also welcome them,” Dilpreet from Jalbera village, said.

Nearly a hundred villagers, mostly associated with BKU, had put up posters at the entry points. These included Mohra, Matheri Jattan and Panjokhra, said Rajeev Sharma, BKU leader and Ambala media in-charge .

in Farouli village, images of a poster is doing the rounds on social media, with a warning: “Gaon mein ghusne parr lath fera jaa sakta hai, jaise sarkaar ne Pipli mein kisano par fera tha, yaad hai na? (Those entering the village might have to face the stick, as was done with farmers in Pipli. Do you remember?).”

Police resorted to a mild lathicharge on farmers at Pipli Chowk near Kurukshetra on September 10 for defying prohibitory orders as they were headed to the grain market to take part in a rally against the farm bills.

However, this poster has no mention of BKU or any other union.

Village sarpanch Sunil Kumar said he had seen the poster on Facebook, but was unable to confirm who had put it up.

“Protests have been continuing for the last few days, so someone must have placed it overnight. I have not seen it, but was told that it was put up near the bus stop here,” Kumar told Hindustan Times.
