Meanwhile, youth urged kisan union leaders to give the call for Parliament gherao if they want to stop the witch-hunting of farmers and activists, besides pressing the Centre to repeal three agri laws. Participants in today’s march in Gurdaspur vowed to take the farmers’ movement to its logical conclusion. The march was organised by the Sikh Youth of Punjab. The demonstrators carried flags and placards to convey their message.
