Satnam Singh Pannu, state president of the Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Morcha, while addressing farmers, said the 'rail roko andolan' would continue till September 29 and even further if the farm Bills were not withdrawn. All markets and commercial complexes remained closed throughout the day. Farmers blocked traffic at various places, including NH-95, Makhu-Amritsar highway and Arifke village. — OC
