Ludhiana, November 25

Just a day after the Northern Railway authorities restored operation of passenger and goods trains after two months of ‘rail roko’ agitation by farmers against farm related Acts of the Modi government, one dissident group led by Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Morcha again laid a siege to rail tracks at Jandiala on the Jalandhar-Amritsar section putting the schedule once again in jeopardy.
