Amritsar, November 11

Farmers, who are protesting the Central farm laws, on Wednesday started off their campaign to observe 'black Diwali' by erecting black flags, pasting posters on buses and appealing to all to support their cause.

Under the banner of Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Committee, Punjab, the agitating farmers reached the Inter-State Bus Terminus, Amritsar, and roped in Punbus staff members in their protest.

The committee's general secretary Sarwan Singh Pandher said besides putting up black flags on buses, they also held a meeting with lawyers who showed solidarity with farmers. The lawyers have installed black flags on their chambers in the Amritsar court complex.

"We have kicked off our 'black Diwali' campaign from Amritsar and it will be observed across Punjab. The farmers' protest will be transformed into a Punjabi protest. As the farm laws would affect every sector and household, we appeal to all to support us and observe black Diwali. The residents should put up black flags atop their houses and shops," he said.
