Punjab Farmers Block Roads, Say MPs Supporting Farm Bills To Be Barred From Villages

Wednesday, 16 September 2020

The state's agitating farmers on Tuesday warned that any Punjab MP who supports the farm bills in parliament will not be allowed to enter the villages as they blocked roads at many places as part of their state-wide protest.The protesting farmers squatted on highways and other key roads for two hours at several places across the state against the three bills calling them "anti-farmer". Commuters faced inconvenience because of road blockades while the authorities diverted traffic.

 

 

 

 

The Centre introduced the bills on food and agriculture reform in the Lok Sabha on Monday. The proposed legislations seek to provide barrier-free trade for farmers' produce outside notified farm mandis, and empower farmers to enter into farming agreements with private players prior to production for sale of agri-produce.Intensifying their agitation, the farmers said they were forced to take to streets because of the apathetic attitude of the central government over their demand for the withdrawal of the bills.
