Bathinda, April 7

Giving thumbs down to the CM’s order on ban on gatherings due to a Covid surge, the BKU (Ekta-Ugrahan) is adamant on holding a kisan conference on Baisakhi at Talwandi Sabo on April 13.

BKU (Ekta-Ugrahan) state secretary Shingara Singh Mann said, “Instead of upgrading and providing better health facilities, the government is creating fear in the minds of people and trying to implement the anti-farmer policies of the Centre in the state on the pretext of Covid-19”.

He said they would definitely hold a kisan conference at Talwandi Sabo on Baisakhi and also remember the martyrs of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre. With CM Capt Amarinder Singh today taking tough measures to arrest the surge in Covid cases, it seems the Baisakhi mela at Talwandi Sabo would be a low-key affair again this year. — TNS
