Members of the Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) took out a protest march carrying black flags on the Independence Day in Mansa district. Among other concerns, the march was primarily against the farm ordinances announced by the Union Government recently.

After carrying out the protest in the city, the members gathered at the grain market where leaders delivered speeches on the 'anti-farmer' policies of the government. Later, they burnt the Centre's effigy at Thikri Wala Chowk.

Sukhdev Singh Kotli, a union leader, said: "With new farm ordinances in place, the farming community, which is already grappling with deep-seated crisis, will be doomed further."

"Not only farmers, others associated with the agricultural sector, such as arhtiyas, farm labourers, mandi board workers, procurement agency workers, transporters and 'palledars', will also be equally affected. Only big corporate houses will call the shots in the agriculture sector," he added.

Earlier, members of the BKU, Krantikari Union, took out a march in different villages of Mansa to protest against the ordinances.
