Ludhiana, September 9

A joint coordination committee of 11 farmer organisations comprising the Kadian faction of the BKU has given a call to farmers to block roads across the state on September 15 for two hours to express their resentment against three farm ordinances.

This was stated by BKU president Harmeet Singh Kadian in a state committee meeting here today. He said the ordinances issued in June were to be placed before two Houses of Parliament in this session for ratification and taking necessary follow up legislative action.

Through the "chakka jam" for two hours in the entire state, the farmers would draw the attention of MPs to oppose the "anti-farmer" legislative measures both in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha and make the government withdraw them.

BKU secretary general Jagdev Singh Kanianwali urged all political parties to leave their differences aside and stand with the farmers in their fight against "unjust and unwarranted" legislations.
