Hoshiarpur, October 11

The United Kisan Morcha organised a kisan mahapanchayat at the Harsa Mansar toll plaza in Mukerian here on Monday. Apart from Punjab, a large number of farmers from border villages of Himachal Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir also participated in the mahapanchayat.

Under the guidance of morcha leader Kulwant Singh Sandhu, a delegation of farmers from Himachal Pradesh, led by Rana Pratap Singh, discussed the farmers’ problems. One of the major problems discussed was that farmers of border areas falling in Himachal were unable to sell their paddy in Punjab due to being refused entry by personnel of the Punjab Police at the checkpost. The farmers of the hill state also discussed this matter with Kulwant Singh Sandhu.

Some farmers of Punjab, whose land also lies on the border of Himachal and Punjab, were also facing similar problems because the policemen of the Punjab Police, stationed at the borders, were not allowing the farmers of Punjab to harvest their paddy crop in the border areas falling in Himachal.
