Moga, September 23

At least 31 farm and farm labour organsations affiliated with the All-India Farmers' Struggle Coordination Committee have appealed to panchayats of all villages in Punjab to pass resolutions against the Bills passed by the NDA government in Parliament.

Senior activists of 31 organisations met here today to chalk out the strategy for the 'Punjab bandh' on September 25. "Only ambulance services will be allowed on

the bandh day," said

Narbhai Singh Dhudike, state president of the Kirti Kisan Union.

While criticising the Centre and Punjab Government, they said the farm laws must not be enacted because they were not in the favour of farmers of Punjab as well as other states of the country.

The farm unions decided that all trains from Delhi to Punjab would be stopped on October 1. Dhudike said they would not allow BJP leaders to enter villages as the party leadership was responsible for passing the farm Bills in Parliament. "We will boycott the BJP at all platforms," he said.

The activists claimed they were united on the issue of farm Bills. "We will intensify the stir in the coming days," he said, adding that the bandh on September 25 would

also be observed in

other states, including Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh and Kerala.

ALl punjabis should come together: Sidhu

Amritsar: Congress MLA and former minister Navjot Singh Sidhu on Wednesday took to the streets of Amritsar against the farm Bills. Sidhu's cavalcade conducted a 'ros march' from Bhandari Bridge to Hill Gate which connects the walled city to the Civil Lines area. Sidhu said, "I have stepped out for farmers and for the united cause of Punjab for which I will fight till my last breath. Rising above party lines, 90 per cent MLAs opposed the Bills. All Punjabis should unite against these."
