11 days, 1,000 km! 60-year-old cycles from Bihar to Delhi to join farmers protest


Farmers protest, which started in Punjab and Haryana, is gradually attracting others from far off areas too. Farming community from different states and regions is joining them. They have either joined in Delhi or are lending support from their own regions by taking out protests, holding rallies etc.  

As even the farmers’ protest in Delhi entered the 23rd Day, protesting farmers in Delhi have a supporter from Bihar, who cycled his way to Delhi covering 1000km in 11 days.  

On Thursday, 60-year-old Satyadev Manjhi from Bihar cycled all the way from his hometown in Siwan to join the farmers agitation.  

It took him 11 days to complete his journey. Manjhi appealed to the Centre to rollback the three farm laws.

The sexagenarian reached Tikri at Delhi-Haryana border to participate in farmers’ protest, reported ANI.

“It took me 11 days to reach here from Siwan, my home district. I urge the government to take back the three farm laws,” Manjhi said.  

Farmers have been protesting on different borders of the national capital since November 26 against the three newly enacted farm laws- Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020, the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020, and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.
