Over 50 trains on Ambala-Amritsar route cancelled as farmers continue 'rail roko' protest

PTC News Desk: As farmers continue their 'rail roko' protest at the Shambhu railway station in Punjab's Patiala district, a total of 54 trains on the Ambala-Amritsar route were cancelled on Saturday.

Farmers' protest at the Shambhu railway station entered its fourth day on Saturday. 


The demonstrators are demanding the release of three farmers who were arrested by the Haryana Police during the ongoing protest.

Railway officials claimed that the farmers' protest caused the cancellation of up to 54 trains on Saturday.

They noted that the protest has disrupted the movement of 380 trains during the last three days, creating discomfort for passengers.

Farmers have been protesting in Shambhu, Patiala district, under the banners of the Samyukta Kisan Morcha (Non-Political) and the Kisan Mazdoor Morcha (KMM).

They started their protest for the release of detained farmers on Wednesday by squatting on the rails of the Ambala-Ludhiana-Amritsar highway in Shambhu, near the Punjab-Haryana border.

Farmer leader Sarwan Singh Pandher stated that the demonstration would continue until the three farmers were released.
