Punjab: Kisan March-led by former Union Minister of Food Processing, Harsimrat Kaur Badal, started from Takht Sri Damdama Sahib at Talwandi Sabo on Thursday. Harsimrat Kaur visited Sri Damdama Sahib and offered prayers before beginning the Kisan March.
She said, "As I join brave Akali workers to march to Chandigarh in solidarity with farmers after seeking blessings of Guru Sahab, I assure Annadata that I won't be found wanting in his quest for justice. Shiromani Akali Dal will do its utmost to get the 'black laws' revoked."
Likewise, the Kisan March, led by Prof. Prem Singh Chandumajra, from Takht Sri Keshgarh Sahib at Sri Anandpur Sahib has also started.
