An extremely tense situation prevails all over Haryana. In the name of maintaining “law and order”, many atrocities against people are being carried out with impunity.

Parties in power have changed – the struggle of workers continues
July 25 marked the 10th anniversary of the brutal attack on the Hero Honda workers in Gurgaon. The incident rattled even the die-hard supporters of the programmes of liberalisation, not so much that they cared for the well being and rights of the workers, but for the fear that this may become the harbinger for revival of the labour movement. Worse, it was captured live on television cameras, bringing back the memories of Jalianwala Bagh, by its sheer brutality and the manner in which it was executed. The modus operandi was similar – launching a savage attack on unarmed, peacefully gathered people after trapping them in a fixed area and closing all escape routes.
Villagers of Isali (Marwad junction) led by their sarpanch organised a demonstration on 4 August 2015 to demand compensation for crop damage in Isali during the hailstorm in April this year.

On the same day, in Sangrur district, hundreds of farmers came out to demonstrate in front of the office of the District Collector under the leadership of Bhartiya Kisan Union. They blocked the streets and caused the traffic to come to a standstill.
