Won’t let govt weaken stir: Farm unions

Bathinda, April 4

The Kul Hind Kisan Sabha and Punjab Khet Mazdoor Sabha have condemned the Centre’s letter that suggested exploitation of migrant workers by farmers by giving them drugs to extract longer working hours.

At a meeting, union leaders said such statements were aimed at weakening the decades-old bond shared among farmers, arhtiyas and farm labourers, and ending the farm agitation without acceding to their demands.

Balkaran Brar, state president, Kul Hind Kisan Sabha, said: “The Centre wants to create a divide, but we won’t let such tactics work as we stand united and determined to fight the battle.”

“On Saturday, trade unions in Ludhiana assured the Samyukt Kisan Morcha of not letting protesters’ numbers fall at Delhi border once farmers head home to harvest wheat,” said Brar. — TNS
