Amritsar, January 18
On a call given by the Joint Farmers’ Front to observe Mahila Kisan Diwas, a large number of women on Monday participated in a protest organised against the three controversial agricultural laws and demanded its immediate repeal.
The protest was held at Deen Dayal Upadhya Market located on Bhandari Bridge here. The women participants from different organisations took out a protest march that passed through various bazaars. They raised slogans against the Central Government for passing the three controversial laws that led the farmers to agitate on Delhi borders.
Speaking on the occasion, various women leaders pointed out that for the past 55 days, farmers belonging to different farmers’ organisations have been sitting on a dharna at Delhi border. They were joined by elderly people, women and children in the bone-chilling weather. They said around 100 farmers had lost their lives during the agitation.
Nevertheless, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his coterie did not pay any heed to their genuine demand of repealing the law. They said the struggle would continue till the government repeal the laws. They said they would continue to support the farmers.
Among those who addressed the gathering included Dr Kanwaljit Kaur, Daswinder Kaur, Jaswinder Kaur, Advocate Kanwaljit Kaur, Kulwinder Kaur and others.
