Bathinda, November 3

BKU (Ekta Sidhupur) president Baldev Sandoha said to strengthen the ongoing farm agitation, large groups of farmers will leave for Tikri from Bathinda from November 6. He announced this during a meeting held here on Wednesday.

Shortage of fertilisers, tardy procurement of paddy in mandis and “inadequate” compensation for cotton crop damage were also discussed during the meeting.

Sandoha said: “The Centre is employing every pressure tactic to destabilise the ongoing agitation for the past over 11 months. We will not tolerate such an approach of the government and would give a befitting reply to it. We will not end the farm movement until the government gives a guarantee on agricultural produce and repeals the three farm laws.” — TNS
