Chandigarh, September 16
As many as 10 farmer organisations in Punjab have introduced ‘Punjab Bandh’ on September 25, in protest towards, what they allege, anti-farmer Bills being enacted by the Parliament.
A choice to name a statewide bandh was taken in a gathering of the organisations, held in Ludhiana at this time. The assembly was attended by Kulwant Sandhu, common secretary, Jamhuri Kisan Sabha; Nirbhai Singh Dhurdike, president, Kirti Kisan Union; Buta Singh Burj Gill, president, Bhartiya Kisan Union (Dakonda) and Jagmohan Patiala, common secretary; Manjit Dhaner, president of Krantikari Kisan Union; Dr. Darshanpal, common secretary and Gurmeet Mahima, president of Punjab Kisan Sabha; Ruldu Singh Mansa, Surat Singh of All India Kisan Sabha; harjit Ravi, common secretary of Kisan Sangharsh Committee, in addition to leaders of Azad Kisan Sangharsh Committee; Jai Kisan Andolan; Punjab Kisan Sabha Sambar and All India Kisan Sabha Punnawal.
These farm leaders determined that in September 25, all companies, highway and rail transport can be utterly shut down throughout Punjab.
To make the bandh a hit, a joint assembly of all of the farmers’ organisations of Punjab has been convened on September 19 in Moga to deliver all of the farmers’ organisations of the state on one platform and intensify the farmers’ motion.
The farmer leaders stated the Modi authorities was hell bent on destroying farmers, labourers and customers of your entire nation. Farmer leaders stated regardless of the autumn in oil costs internationally, the Modi authorities was elevating oil costs. The leaders stated the wrestle would proceed until these disastrous legal guidelines have been abolished and oil was decreased.
