Moga women launch campaign to drum up support

Tribune News Service
Moga, January 1

Baghapurana women have launched an awareness campaign titled 'Jago' to mobilise support for the farmers' agitation. Most of them are from sub-urban localities. They said women from urban areas were coming forward in support of the farmers.

"Women from villages are already part of the agitation. It is difficult to mobilise women from cities. Their participation signals the changing mindset," said one of the women who launched the campaign. She hoped that the New Year would take the farmers' agitation to its logical conclusion.

Baghapurana women said they would go to Delhi, make langar and sit on a chain fast. "Urban women were a little reluctant earlier, but they understood the issue when explained. We have been encouraging city women to protest against the controversial farm laws. It's a question of survival of farmers. If they are hit, all others will be affected," said Baljit Kaur of Baghapurana.
