Amritsar, November 13

Protesting the Central agriculture laws, farmers under the banner of the Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Committee (KMSC) today blocked the International Attari-Lahore route for a few hours and burnt an effigy of the Central Government at Shyam Singh Attari Chowk.

KMSC general secretary Sarwan Singh Pandher said a statewide campaign of burning the Centre’s effigy had been launched from Amritsar today.

“Unlike the other farm organisations which accepted the Centre’s invite for talks, we had rejected the proposal as the environment was not conducive with BJP leaders giving anti-farmer statements. But our goal is similar,” he said.

He said the committee’s call to observe ‘black Diwali’ had evoked a good response from traders, transporters and the public. “We will further intensify the agitation from November 15”, he said.
