BKU protests Centre’s farm ordinances

Bathinda, August 14

Members of the BKU Krantikari Union took out a flag march at different villages in Mansa to protest against the Union Government’s “anti-farmer” ordinances.

The march was carried out at Malakpur Khiala, Khiala Kalan, Khiala Khurd, Bhupal, Ralla, Joga, Buraj Jhabbar, Ubha, Burj Hari and Tamkot villages in the district.

Ughar Singh, president of the union, said, “We will observe the Independence Day as black day to express our resentment towards the Centre for introducing farm ordinances. If the ordinances and the decision to impose GST on agricultural land leased on contract for cultivation is implemented, then the farming community will be further pushed down to its lowest ebb.” — TNS
