Nationwide Farmers’ Protest Today; Punjab, Haryana Likely To See Total Shutdown


Farm sector bills: Farmers in Punjab plan to block railway tracks for 3 days.

New Delhi:

As farmer unions in Punjab has started their three-day “Rail Roko” protest on Thursday against the three farm sector bills in Amritsar and Firozpur districts, others have given a call for a statewide “bandh” on September 25, and from October 1. In view of today’s protests, the Firozpur Railway Division has cancelled 14 trains affecting the state’s connectivity with Mumbai and Nanded in Maharashtra, Kolkata and New Jalpaiguri in West Bengal, Jaynagar in Bihar, and Haridwar in Uttar Pradesh.

The increasing calls for protests amid the coronavirus pandemic in Punjab indicate that though the bills may have been passed in the parliament, the farmers – who are wary that the bills will spell the end of the Minimum Support Price (MSP) system once procurement starts outside mandis – are in no mood to accept them.
