Farmers seek cancellation of FIRs

Bathinda, September 29

Farmers under the banner of BKU (Sidhupur) today blocked all gates of the district administrative complex (DAC), demanding the cancellation of all FIRs.

However, the protesters allowed women employees to go back. The district administration has held various meetings to resolve the issue, but has failed to get any breakthrough. Irked over the non-fulfilment of demands, the activists have been staging a protest against the state government for the last many days outside the DAC.

The union leader, Kaka Singh Kotra, said: "We are protesting against the decision of turning Mandikalan nagar panchayat into gram panchayat. Our demand is cancellation of all the cases registered against farmers for stubble burning and removal of red entries in their revenue records for burning farm residue." — TNS
