Another Punjab farmer dies at Tikri border; details inside
As farmers protest against farm laws 2020 continues, another Punjab farmer died due to cardiac arrest at the Tikri border in the wee hours of Saturday.
The Punjab farmer who died at the Tikri border has been identified as Harvinder Singh (48) of Mansa district in Punjab.
Meanwhile, former Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal said, "No Repeal! Despite more than 80 deaths in 58 days, the BJP-led Government of India doesn't care."
"In fact, it abruptly calls off further talks with farmers, exposing their true intention was only to tire out farmers with useless meetings. In this tough fight ahead, SAD stands rock solid with farmers," he added.
Likewise, Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh had announced jobs for one member of each of the families of the state’s farmers who lost their lives in protest against the farm laws 2020.
Farmers have been protesting at the Delhi borders for over two months now. It is pertinent to mention that the 11th round of meeting between the protesting farmers and the Centre remained inconclusive while no date has been fixed for the next meeting.
The farmers have been protesting against the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020, Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020, and Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.
