Chandigarh, May 17

Farmers in Punjab, under the aegis of the Bhartiya Kisan Union (Ekta Ugrahan), will hold public protests outside the offices of Punjab State Power Corporation Limited from May 22 to May 24.

In a decision today, the union said protests would be held against police cases being registered against farmers for burning wheat stubble. Farmers are also demanding a 16-hour power supply to farms from June 1 onwards, for paddy transplantation. "The transplantation is expected to go on till July-end as labourers are not available," said union general secretary Sukhdev Singh Kokrikalan.
