Chandigarh, December 6

A day ahead of the ‘Bharat Bandh’ called by the farmer unions against the contentious Central agriculture laws, Congress MPs from Punjab have announced a dharna tomorrow at Jantar Mantar to press for holding the winter session of Parliament.

Ludhiana MP Ravneet Bittu has written to the Delhi Police seeking permission to protest at Jantar Mantar. He said in the wake of the ongoing dharna at the Delhi borders by farm unions, it was important for the BJP-led NDA government to take action in the matter. It had become a mass movement and the Centre had to address it urgently.

“If the session is held, MPs from different states will come and the pressing matter of the farm laws can be discussed to make necessary changes. A session is the only way to end the national-level agitation,” Bittu said.

Amritsar MP Gurjeet Aujla said the farmer unions had been pressing upon the BJP government to call the session to repeal the farm laws. The session was must to save the situation from getting worse, he added.
