31 unions join hands to make bandh a success

Chandigarh, September 23

Farmer organisations in Punjab are getting widespread support across the social spectrum in their agitation against the farm Bills as they prepare for a complete 'Punjab bandh' on Friday.

Having already refused help from political parties, all 31 farmer organisations in Punjab have joined hands to ensure that their bandh call is a success. Even as representatives of the organisations met at Moga today to finalise their strategy post the September 25 bandh, they are busy mobilising their block-level workers and strategising the joint protest by workers of all 31 groups.

Jagmohan Singh Patiala, member of the All-India Kisan Sangharsh Coordination Committee, which is leading the protests, said the angst among farmers against the government over the "kaale kanoon" (black laws) had never been so visible. Dr Darshan Pal of the Krantikari Kisan Union, said the trade organisations had assured them of a complete bandh of markets. Dairy farm unions had promised that there would be no milk supply across the state on Friday. — TNS
