By Times of India – A first in Uchana: Women take the wheel as farmers plan tractor march Women being trained to drive tractor near Khatkar toll plazaJIND: For the first time, women are learning to drive tractors in Uchana town of Haryana’s Jind district. They are being trained by men to participate in the proposed tractor march in Delhi on January 26. Women are being trained to drive tractor near Khatkar toll plaza at Jind-Patiala highway. They are also being taught how to hitch trolleys and negotiate narrow streets and speed breakers. The farmers have fixed Tricolour on the tractors driven by women. This is momentous move for Bangar area, where women are generally veiled and don’t get involved in public activities. “I am a farmer’s daughter and am therefore, taking training to drive tractors. If the Centre does not fulfil our demands till January 26, women will participate in the tractor march. Women will show their power to Prime Minister Narendra Modi,” said Saroj Devi, a resident of Khatkar village in Jind district. “Everyone will leave Haryana on January 26 to hold a march at Delhi borders. We only knew of the international borders with China and Pakistan but the Modi government has created a battle border between Jawan and Kisan at the Delhi border. We will defeat arrogant Modi this time as he has lied to every section of the society after taking votes. He should either repeal the laws or be ready to face the consequences on January 26,” said Satbir Pahalwan, a khap president. FacebookTwitterLinkedinEMail
