Punjab CM launches stir against farm laws at Bhagat Singh's village

Chandigarh, Sep 28 Punjab Congress leaders, led by Chief Minister Amarinder Singh, on Monday launched a sit-in agitation against the contentious agricultural laws at Khatkar Kalan in Nawanshahr, the birthplace of Bhagat Singh.

Besides legal recourse, the Punjab government was looking at other options to scuttle the Centre's new agriculture laws "that are designed to ruin Punjab's farmers and economy", said the Chief Minister.

The Chief Minister sat on 'dharna' against the "draconian" laws after paying tributes to Bhagat Singh at his 'Samadhi Sthal' on his 113 birth anniversary.

AICC General Secretary and state affairs in-charge Harish Rawat, state party chief Sunil Jakhar and Cabinet ministers were among those present.

Terming President Ram Nath Kovind's assent to the Farm Bills as "unfortunate and distressing", Amarinder Singh said his government is exploring all options, including possible amendments to the state laws, to protect the interests of the farmers.
