Statement of Lok Raj Sangathan, 11 August 2015: Jai Kisan Abhiyan was launched by Swaraj Abhiyan in which hundreds of farmers and concerned people joined a tractor march from Thikriwal village of Barnala District of Punjab to Delhi through Haryana and UP. The tractor march reached Delhi border on Sunday, 9th August 2015 at Kapasheda. Delhi police denied them permission to drive the tractors inside Delhi so hundreds of the demonstrators had to walk on foot to Jantar Mantar where a rally was organised on 10th August to highlight the plight of the farmers. After the rally in Jantar Mantar, the demonstrators wanted to send a delegation of 20 women who had come from Maharashtra to take kalashs containing soil from thousands of villages across India to Race Course area. They want a memorial to be built for the country to remember the 300,000 farmers who have been forced to commit suicide.
