Amritsar, November 21

The ongoing protest by different farmers’ organisations on the issue of three farm laws, earlier passed by the Centre, entered the 52nd day at Butari railway station.

The farmers stated that the shortage of urea, which is required for wheat crop should be made available at the earliest. They also stated that they had allowed entry of goods trains in the state after the appeal of the state government but Central Government had shown an indifferent attitude towards them by not sending the trains.

Farmers are also sitting on protest at Gehri Mandi Railway station, at petrol pumps operated by Reliance, toll plazas and outside the residence of BJP’s Rajya Sabha member Shwait Malik. The farmer leaders stated that the protest against the government would continue.
