Punjab farmers have also decided that they will continue to gherao the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders in the state.
They also said that till the time their demands are fulfilled, Punjab Farmers will continue with their protest. Rail Roko agitation is being staged in Amritsar demanding that the Centre’s ‘black laws’ be withdrawn.
The fight is against the Centre’s farm laws 2020 that were passed in the Parliament and later got consent from President of India Ram Nath Kovind.
The next meeting of Punjab farmers have been scheduled to be held on November 5.

The three Bills are The Farmers Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Special Provisions and Punjab Amendment Bill, 2020, The Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services (Special Provisions and Punjab Amendment) Bill, 2020, and The Essential Commodities (Special Provisions and Punjab Amendment) Bill, 2020.
