Ludhiana, September 20

Agitated farmers burnt the copies of the Bills here and announced to hold "rail roko" on September 24, 25 and 26.

Presiding over a meeting of various farmer bodies, Dr Darshan Pal, state president, Krantikari Kisan Union (KKU), claimed that all organisations of farmers were committed

to fighting jointly against the 'repressive and pro-corporate' agenda of the Modi government.

Harmeet Singh Kadian and Harinder Singh Lakhowal, president and general secretary, of the Kadian and Lakhowal factions of the BKU,

respectively, alleged that the NDA government was bringing legislative measures to annihilate the traditional farming in the predominantly agrarian states. A joint Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Committee was set up to coordinate the programme chalked out for

the decisive battle against the Central Government.

Meanwhile, the All-India Kisan Federation and Marxist Communist Party of India (United) met at Doraha to show solidarity with the farming community. The meeting flayed the way the Central Government passed the Bills in Parliament, ignoring the countrywide protests by the farmers. It was decided to observe a weeklong protest from October 1 to 7 throughout the country. In Punjab, the protest will be held on October 5. — TNS
