Doraha, September 25

Bhartiya Kisan Union (Ekta) Ugrahan is regularly holding village and block-level rallies to garner maximum support for the Bharat bandh on Monday. Men, women and children of villages in the Doraha block have in turn promised full-fledged support to the Bharat bandh call.

“The highly indifferent, uncaring and apathetic attitude of the Central Government towards the rollback of the three farm laws even after an year of their passing, has to be condemned and resented at all levels by each and every villager by extending support to the bandh call given by SKM,” shared villagers.

The general secretary, BKU (Ekta) Ugrahan, Saudagar Singh Ghudani, district president Baldev Singh, and others said they would not allow anything to operate, leave aside emergency activities, on the day of the Bharat bandh. “However, the bandh will be peaceful,” they asserted.

Covering villages of Doraha block the unionists today called for complete Bharat bandh on Monday and maximum participation in the Barnala Conference on Tuesday. The unionists also rallied in villages of the Pakhowal block.

Farmers in villages said they were ready to fight against the dictatorial role of by the Central Government. “Nothing can be more unfortunate than the fact that thousands of farmers have died and thousands bereaved in the fight against three contentious laws. We have a strong will. Sitting on the Delhi borders for the past one year, we have coped with the inclement weather, diseases, ailments and even coronavirus,” added farmers.

“There has to be complete Bharat bandh on Monday. Everyone has the right to put forth demands before the government and that too in a peaceful manner. The role played by the Central Government on the other hand is condemnable. There is still time to take back these farm laws and rebuild confidence in the farming community and the public in general,” said farmers.
