New Delhi: Sunday is the 39th day of the peasant movement. Farmers are still stuck on the borders of Delhi, despite the bitter cold and fog and many other problems.

Farmers were already facing all kinds of problems, but the rains since this morning have added to their problems even more. Now the movement of farmers is taking a painful form even in the view of humanity.

More than 50 deaths in protest:

On Saturday, a farmer committed suicide due to harassment from the government. His funeral pyre was not even completed that three more farmers died at different protest sites on Sunday morning.

The rest of the farmers participating in the movement are deeply saddened by the news of the farmers' deaths. They are appealing to the government to fulfill their demands so that the farmer ends his movement soon and returns to his home safely.

Deaths due to cold weather:

A farmer died on Sunday morning at the Tikri border. He is identified as Jagbir Singh (60). It is being told that Jagbir, a resident of village Ittal Kala in Jind district, died due to extreme cold. But only after the investigation is complete will the real cause of death be revealed.

Fellow protesters who came to participate in the movement said that they had been standing on pillar number 764 for a week. He died at around seven in the morning on Sunday after suffering more health problems. Jagbir has two children. He has a 32-year-old boy and a 28-year-old girl.

Chaudhary Joginder Nain, president of the Bharatiya Kisan Union (Ghasiram Nain), told that when people called to drink tea in the morning, they told that there was restlessness. As the condition worsened, fellow protesters took him to Bahadurgarh Hospital, but he succumbed before reaching the hospital.
