Demanding the release of farmers and others arrested during the recent rail roko drive in the state, farmers and farm-labourer organisation have decided to launch state-vide indefinite stir in every district headquarter from March 18. Manjit Singh Dhaner, the leader of Bharti Kisan Union (Dhakonda), said this after a meeting of various organisations.


“On March 12, effigies of state government would be burned in every district and on March 15 we will organise a meeting of coordination committees to make this stir a sucess," he said.

Another leader Hardev Singh Sandhu alleged that both the UPA government and the state government were non-serious to the problems faced by the common man and the labour class, said another leader Hardev Singh Sandhu.

“Scores of villagers are living under the threat of unemployment and they are not comfortable to meet their both ends but the governments are burdening them with different levies and taxes under the pressure of capitalists.”
