Sangrur, November 21

The Bhartiya Kisan Union (Ugrahan) led protest against the Central farm laws in front of the residence of BJP leader Satwant Singh Punia at Gurdaspura village entered Day 41 today. Besides the ongoing protest, farmers are gearing up for the march towards New Delhi on November 26 and 27.

“Our preparations are in full swing for the protest in the national capital. We are getting a good response across the state. The Central Government cannot stop us from reaching Delhi,” said Gobinder Singh, Sangrur block president, BKU (Ugrahan).

Protesters alleged that the Central Government had been creating problems for them by delaying the supply of urea and nothing could stop them to reach Delhi

to highlight their plight.

“The Central laws will kill farming as private companies would purchase our crops at lower rates. But we will not allow it to happen,” said Sarup Chand, another leader of BKU (Ugrahan).
