Farmers burn copies of new ordinances in Kurukshetra

Kurukshetra, September 5

Farmers under the banner of Bharatiya Kisan Union (Charuni) held protests at the village level in Kurukshetra and Ambala against the Centre's three ordinances on agriculture sector.

They burnt the copies of the ordinances and the effigies of the BJP government. The protests were held against the Farmers' Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Ordinance, the Farmers Agreement of Price Assurance and Farm Services Ordinance and the Ordinance to amend the Essential Commodities Act.

BKU (Charuni) chief Gurnam Singh said: "Protests were held at the village level on Saturday to make people aware of the new ordinances. We have received a good response. The union has now decided to use Twitter to raise the demand of 'MSP Guarantee Kanoon Banao' on September 7 and then a rally will be held on September 10 in Kurukshetra."

"The Kurukshetra administration has warned us of registering a case if we hold the rally, but we are not going to withdraw our decision. We have been making the preparations for the last over 20 days now and the administration must understand that the farmers have been forced by the government to take such a step," he added. — TNS
