Bathinda, November 10

With farmers protesting outside corporate stores in the region since October 1, Best Price Walmart wholesale store at Bucho Khurd on the Bathinda-Chandigarh highway and Reliance Market on the Barnala Bypass Road are incurring a huge financial loss this festival season.

The financial loss is also mounting for companies that have a contract of toll plazas at Lehra Begga and Jeeda in the district as farmer have been protesting there for past over one month.

Besides, farmers are protesting at the main gate of private thermal plants at Baniwala village in Mansa and Rajpura.

“Farmers have cleared the railway tracks. Despite this, the Union Government is not restarting good trains carrying fertilisers, gunny bags, coal and many essential items in the state on one pretext or the other. The Narendra Modi government doesn’t have any concern for the people of the state,” said Shingara Singh Mann, district president, BKU (Ekta Ugrahan). — TNS
