Chandigarh: Thirty-one farmers’ our bodies in Punjab on Saturday joined arms to make the September 25 bandh towards the agriculture-related Bills launched in Parliament by the Centre successful. Representatives of the farmers’ outfits held a gathering on this regard at Moga on Saturday.

A name for a ‘rail roko’ agitation has already been given by the Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Committee from September 24 to 26. Among the key farmers’ unions which supported the bandh name are the Bharti Kisan Union (Krantikari); Kirti Kisan Union; Bharti Kisan Union (Ekta Ugrahan); BKU (Lakhowal); BKU (Kadiyan); BKU (Sidhupur); BKU (Doaba) and BKU (Dakunda), mentioned Krantikari Kisan Union president Darshan Pal.






Farmers have expressed apprehension that the three Bills will pave a manner for dismantling the minimal assist worth system, leaving them on the mercy of massive corporates. The three legislations–Farmers’ Produce Trade And Commerce (Promotion And Facilitation) Bill; The Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Bill; and Essential Commodities (Amendment) Bill–have been handed by the Lok Sabha lately. These will now be tabled within the Rajya Sabha.
