Punjab Diary: Lo and behold

Gurdaspur: As farmers blocked the rail tracks, college students reached the Gurdaspur railway station to impress upon the protesters the futility of this exercise. They highlighted the hardships faced by commuters during such protests. A farm leader then told the group about how the government does not listens to them till they resort to jamming the traffic. Many students were impressed by the farmers’ logic. Lo and behold, at least a group of students decided to join the protests then and there.
