Everything changed after Tikait’s Thursday evening speech at Ghazipur, refusing to follow the local administration’s orders to vacate the site and court arrest. As videos of his breaking down and threats of hanging himself if the farm laws weren’t repealed went viral, “har kisan roya aur sabhi ko Mahender Singh Ji yaad aaya (every farmer cried and remembered his father and BKU founder Mahendra Singh Tikait)”, said Rajvir Singh Mundet, a Shamli-based social worker and activist.

Confrontation has been reported from Singhu Border on Friday, when large Police Force gathered and tried to vacate the protest site. After the incident an SHO has been arrested. on the other hand the protest site at Ghazipur continued to draw more protesters throughout Friday and Saturday morning.

The Protesters have declared that they will observe Sadbhawna Diwas on the death anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi on January 30.

The Government is so keen to crush the farmers Movement that they have cut the electricity and water supply at the Ghazipur Border protest site. The protesters are struggling to get the basic facilities (Toliets, Foods, Drinking Water etc). Internet connection has been jammed.   

Protesters are claiming that the Goons of BJP are trying to malign the protest. the Local MLA's and BJP workers are stone pelting and struggling with Police forces to malign the image of Farmers and projecting a wrong image of farmers. The protest is peaceful and Farmers are silently sitting and exercising their fundamental right to protest against the Wrongdoings of Central Government.

Various political parties have extended their support to the farmers after an emotional appeal of Rakesh Tikait.  It has been learnt when Bharatiya Kisan Union president Naresh Tikait spoke of withdrawing the protest from Ghazipur site, RLD leader Ajit Singh talked to him and convinced him to not remove protesters from the site. Meanwhile another faction of Bharatiya Kisan Union, BKU (Lok Shakti) which announced withdrawal from the protest earlier rejoined the protest on Friday.

Delhi minister and AAP leader Manish Sisodia visited the site and checked all arrangements while Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said he is with the farmers. He also said "fake charges" have been brought against farmers leaders.
