Chandigarh, November 21

Kisan Unions on Saturday decided to allow all trains to pass through the state from November 24.

Raveen Thukral, media adviser to Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh, also tweeted on his official handle.

“Punjab CM @capt_amarinder assures Kisan Unions to consider their demands, including sugarcane rates and dues as well FIRs in 2019 stubble burning cases, before November 30, and to form a committee of officers to discuss the same,” Thurkral wrote on Twitter.

Of the 30 unions that are jointly holding protests against the three farm laws, at least 14 had expressed their opinion to vacate all railway property during a meeting on Wednesday.

The unions are not just under pressure from the Centre and state government but also from the industry to change their protest tactics and help lift the “economic blockade” imposed on the state as the Centre has refused to resume train services till all railway property was vacated by the protesters. Farmers are presently sitting in protest on railway land, other than tracks and platforms.
