Tanda Urmar, September 26

Members of the Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Samiti, Hoshiarpur unit, led by district head Kuldeep Singh Begowal, held a one-day sit-in (dharna) on the railway track in Tanda against the Modi government on Saturday.

They protested against the farm Bills and raised slogans against the Centre by blocking the Jalandhar-Pathankot rail track near the Darapur gate. Meanwhile, rail movement on this track has been suspended by the Railways till September 29. While addressing the protesters, various speakers said the Central government wanted to eliminate farmers of Punjab and provide benefit to their corporate friends. The Modi government was forcing farmers of Punjab to live a life of corporate slaves, which would not be tolerated at any cost.

They said they have started a struggle across the state to protest against the Bills and their struggle would continue till the government withdraws these Bills. During this, Kuldeep Singh Begowal, Kashmir Singh Fatta Kulla, Paramjit Singh Bhulla Bath, Daler Singh, Sodhi Shahbazpur, Yodha Singh Gandhuwal and large number of farmers were present.
