On the call of the Sanyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM), farmers protesting against the three farm laws are gearing up for tomorrow’s “rail roko” protest.

Even as the farm unions have called for a peaceful protest, security forces have been put on alert to avoid any untoward incident.

In a video, BKU (Charuni) chief Gurnam Singh Charuni asked the farmers to assemble at designated spots in their respective districts and make the protest a success.

“As decided by the SKM, trains will be stopped from 12 pm to 4 pm on February 18. I appeal to all farmers to fix one point in their districts and assemble at that spot. We have to ensure that the protest is held in a peaceful manner,” Charuni said.
