Muktsar, October 16

A day after some farmers blocked the way of former Union Minister of State (MoS) and senior BJP leader Vijay Sampla at Maha Badhar village here, a large number of farmers on Friday protested the visit of Congress MLA Amarinder Singh Raja Warring to Gurusar village in Gidderbaha Assembly segment here.

They even waved black flags at him while he had come to meet party workers.

Notably, a majority of residents of the village have already announced that they wouldn’t allow any politician to visit their residences in the wake of their protest against the farm laws. They have even pasted stickers outside their residences, instructing no entry for politicians.

When Warring, along with his cavalcade, came to the residence of a Congress activist in the village today, several farmers gathered and protested by showing black flags from outside the residence.

Meanwhile, sensing the gravity of the situation, a police party led by DSP Gidderbaha too had reached there.

Hardeep Bhangal, a resident of Gurusar village, said, “In protest against the farm laws, we today protested when Warring visited our village. Though the police did not allow us to go near him, yet we showed black flags. We are not lodging protest against any individual or any political outfit, our protest is against all the politicians. We have even announced that no politician would be allowed to visit anyone in the village until the farm laws are revoked.”
