Rohtak, October 20

The All-India Kisan Sangharsh Coordination Committee (AIKSCC) has decided to launch another round of agitation against the three controversial farm laws from November 1.

The decision was taken at a meeting attended by 50 representatives of 34 organisations here on Tuesday. The meeting was presided over by three members of all-India working group of the AIKSCC — Prem Singh Gehlawat, Yogendra Yadav and Satyawan.

The meeting also condemned the police for framing farmers in criminal cases.

Inderjit Singh, state vice-president, AIKSCC, said: "From November 1, groups of farmers from across the state will start proceeding towards Karnal, where a state-level protest will be organised outside the Chief Minister's camp office on November 9. The meeting also decided to make preparations for 'Delhi gherao' on November 26 and 27," said.

He further said that to make all sections of society aware of the "pro-corporate" character of the farm laws, pamphlets would be published and videos would be made.

Krishna Prasad, national treasurer of the AIKSCC, said intensifying the protest against the three farm laws was the need of the hour.

Punjab misleading farmers: Dhankar
