Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Committee’s state general secretary Sarwan Singh Pandher said they would boycott products of multi-million business houses trying to invade the farm sector. “First, they will try to lure us with good offers, and then render us helpless. We have approached every household in remote areas, asking residents to oppose the move,” he said. In Amritsar and other mandis, 1509 basmati was yet to be procured. He said the situation would go from bad to worse once the farm Acts came into force.

“The NDA government said private companies would provide us seed, urea and pesticides, which they already have been doing. The companies are robbing the farmers,” he said.
