Farmers burn govt’s effigies

Amritsar, October 25

Farmers blocked the Amritsar-Tarn Taran road and burnt effigies of the Central Government as part of its protest against the three farm Acts.

Farmer leaders said effigies of the Union Government would be burnt at the village level in the coming days. KMSC general secretary Sarwan Singh Pandher said the protest against BJP leaders would further be intensified in all cities. The farmer activists said they were burning effigies of the BJP government and corporate houses on Dasehra as both were evil and working against the welfare of the general public.

Meanwhile, the rail roko protest at the Buttari railway station near Beas, outside the residence of Rajya Sabha member Shwait Malik, at toll plazas and petrol pumps of Reliance Industries also continued. — TNS
