A meeting of the leaders of Punjab’s largest farmer union, BKU Ekta Ugrahan, with the three-member committee of state Cabinet ministers has just begun.
Tript Rajinder Singh Bajwa, Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa and Sukhbinder Singh Sarkaria arrived at Punjab Bhavan immediately after the obituary references got over at the Vidhan Sabha. The ministers are here to convince the union leadership to scale down their agitation.
Union president Joginder Singh Ugrahan said they would not relent from the ongoing stir till the government took effective steps to counter the agriculture laws passed by the Centre. “We also want the Congress govt to withdraw the amendments made by the state government in 2017 to the APMC Act,” he said.
