Avoid protests in Punjab rather mount pressure on Centre, Amarinder appeals to farmers’ unions

Avoid protests in Punjab rather mount pressure on Centre,  Amarinder appeals to farmers’ unions

Hoshiarpur, Sep 13 (UNI) Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Monday appealed to the representatives of various farmers' unions not to hold protests across the state against the contentious farm laws passed by the Centre as the state government and its people have already expressed solidarity with them on this issue.
In his address after laying the foundation stone of Government College at Village Mukhliana in Chabbewal assembly constituency at a cost of Rs 13.44 crore, the Chief Minister without mincing any words, categorically said that the state where its entire people stood like a rock with them in favour of their legitimate issues, should desist from holding protests across the state against these three farm laws passed by the BJP led Central Government and thrusted upon them unilaterally even without taking into their confidence.
Capt Amarinder said these ongoing protests at 113 places in Punjab by the farmers were not at all in the interests of the state, which has considerably impacted its economic development and hoped his request would be acceded by the farmers on agitation.
