Chandigarh/ Moga, September 19
On a call given by the Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU), Haryana farmers will on Sunday organise road blockades to protest the farm Bills. The Khattar government has instructed DCs and SPs to deal with the protesters with “tact and patience”.
Farm organisations led by BKU state president Gurnam Singh Charuni have given a call for a three-hour blockade from 12 noon to 3 pm. The government had faced flak over its handling of the kisan rally in Pipli on September 11. This time, it has asked its officials to exercise restraint.
The Additional Chief Secretary, Home, has written to commissioners, IGs, DCs and SPs to ensure that nobody takes law into his/her own hands. “Organisers should be prevailed upon to register their protest in a peaceful and lawful manner and desist from blocking highways,” reads the letter.
In Punjab’s Moga, 30 farm bodies met today. Joginder Singh Ugrahan, president, BKU (Ekta), said there would a “complete shutdown” in the state on September 25. “Trains will be stopped at specific locations”, he added.
