Moga, November 17

The deadlock over farm legislations still continues with protests going on in the state by farm unions. Train services are still suspended, toll plazas shutdown and protests going on against big corporate houses in the state.

After the failure of two table talks between representatives of the Union Government and the farm unions to find out a solution to the controversies arisen due to the recently enacted farm legislations, the Centre seems to be adamant on its decision to implement the laws.

Sukhdev Singh Kokri Kalan, general secretary of the BKU (Ekta), said the farm unions demanded to roll back these legislations and nothing less than this was acceptable to them. "All farm unions are united on this issue," he said.

After the failure of talks, the Union Government has so far not given any sign of further talks to end the impasse or repeal the recently enacted laws. On November 20, the deputations of farm unions will give memorandums of demands, which falls under the preview of the state government, to the district magistrates at all district headquarters in the state.

Kokri Kalan made it clear that the farm unions were in no way disrupting the movement of goods trains in the state. "We have already cleared the tracks and it's now up to the Centre to take a decision on plying of trains in the state," he said.

Stand by farmers in their struggle: AAP

Chandigarh: The AAP on Tuesday raised voice against the Central farm laws. In a press statement, Sangrur MP Bhagwant Mann said, "The state government should come out with a legislation guaranteeing purchase of all crops at the MSP. If The CM is serious about the issues and concerns of the farmers, he should assure the farmers to procure their crops at MSP," he said. The party had been fighting the battle of the farmers of the state since long and would continue to do so in future, he said. Mann said the party would support the farmers in their struggle. tns
