Ludhiana, January 13

Members of the All India Sikh Students’ Federation burned copies of the farm laws on the occasion of Lohri on Wednesday in Ludhiana.

Expressing their protest against the BJP-led Central Government, the members blamed that the Centre was responsible for deaths of those farmers who died during the farmers’ protest in Delhi.

Senior members Paramjit Singh Khalsa, Major Singh Khalsa and Daler Singh, along with other members, gathered in the city and burnt the copies of the farm laws to mark their protest.

They said: “The Narendra Modi-led Central Government is introducing anti-people policies. We burnt the copies of the black laws today. Actually, the Centre is acting like a puppet of some corporate houses. If anyone raises voice against the Union Government, he is defamed with false allegations.

“The farm laws are not only anti-farmers but also against people, hence these should be repealed. We will intensify the agitation,” said Daler Singh.

Meanwhile, members of the BKU Ekta (Ugrahan) burnt copies of the farm laws near MBD Mall on Ferozepur Road here. A leader of the union Bharpur Singh said they burnt the copies of the draconian farm laws on the occasion of Lohri and had been staging a protest on Ferozepur Road for the past 68 days.
