Representatives of 29 organisations met here on Tuesday and decided to accept Centre's invitation. The Bhartiya Kisan Union (Ekta Ugrahan), which has been holding separate protests, has also agreed to be part of the meeting with the Secretary, Agriculture. The unions, however, decided to continue the protests.

Punjab ministers Tript Bajwa and Sukhbinder Sarkaria told union leaders that a special Assembly session was being convened to reject the farm laws.

Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri also held a virtual meet with farmers, most of whom expressed resentment against the laws. — TNS

'Attack pre-planned'

Pathankot: A day after he was attacked, Punjab BJP chief Ashwani Sharma on Tuesday termed it 'an act of state-sponsored terrorism'. He claimed he had evidence that state agencies had planned and executed the 'assault'. "They wanted to make it appear as if farmers were behind it," Sharma alleged.
