Dera Baba Nanak (Gurdaspur), November 30

Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh inaugurated a Sugarcane Research Institute to be established in Kalanaur, near here, on the lines of the Vasantdada Sugarcane Institute, Pune, a 300-metre-long heritage street and Banda Singh Bahadur Museum today. He urged everybody present there to follow the teachings of the first Sikh Guru in letter and spirit.

"My farmers cannot be wrong but what New Delhi is doing is wrong. The people who have drafted the farm Bills are unaware of the disaster they would actually spell for the farming community. The Bills are totally ill-conceived. These laws have done nothing except to ensure the 150-year-old relationship between the farmers of Punjab and commission agents dies a natural death," he said.

Dubai businessman Surinder Pal Singh Oberoiwas present as a special invitee, while Supreme Court lawyer Prashant Bhushan made a surprise appearance. The Dubai entrepreneur has agreed to bear the entire cost of the construction of the Banda Bahadur Museum.

Every speaker, including PPCC chief Sunil Jakhar, made it a point to take on the Centre. "Please spare a thought for our farmers. When tillage begins, other arts follow. The farmers, therefore, are the founders of human civilisation," he said.

Cabinet Minister Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa said the agriculture fraternity would ultimately triumph in this war against "tyranny, despotism and injustice".

"Our farmers are indeed courageous. Only those who risk going too far can possibly find how far one can actually go," he said referring to the farmers' agitation in New Delhi. Patiala MP Preneet Kaur was also present.
