Chandigarh, January 13

In a protest organised by civil society and student groups at the Sector 17 Plaza, copies of the controversial farm laws were burnt by people to mark the Lohri festival.

A crowd of about a hundred people started the protest with a two-minute silence for those who died at protest sites near Delhi, where farmers from across the country are protesting the laws.

Joining in, actor-politician Gul Panag shared: “The protest has now become a mass movement of sorts, much on the account of incredible music by a lot of singers such as Ranjeet Bawa, Kanwar Grewal and Harf Cheema.From what one hears, there has been no representation of anti-farm law voice in the four-member committee formed by the SC,” she added.

Punjabi Singer Noor Chahal said: “I come from the agricultural background and can understand the pain of the farmers.”
