The politics in Punjab is completely hot in the context of Agriculture Bills. Here, except for the side or the opposition BJP, all are unanimously opposed to these Bills. On Sunday, the Punjab Youth Congress, along with farmers, took out a rally in tractors on the Chandigarh-Delhi National Highway in Zirakpur to protest against the agricultural bills. During this, he shouted slogans against the central government.

The tractor rally started from the old site of the decathlon at Zirakpur and traveled through the Ambala-Chandigarh highway to Delhi. Meanwhile, Haryana Police has installed border barricades. The police will not let them enter Haryana. Farmers are also involved in the rally. In this rally, Punjab Congress President Sunil Jakhar, Punjab Cabinet Minister Balbir Singh Sidhu, in addition to Punjab Youth Congress President Varinder Dhillon and Youth Congress heads and leaders of different districts are included.

Police imposed barricades on Haryana border.

At the same time, the farmers continue to have a firm front in Patiala. Last day, Punjabi singer Harjit Harman reached his dharna and said that the central government is issuing such decrees for the purpose of killing the farmers. The peasant class is already hitting debt and inflation, due to which farmers are forced to commit suicide. Due to the wrong policies of the Center, farmers have to take to the streets.

Earlier, Daljit Dosanjh has supported the dharna by tweeting and Jasbir Jassi through a song. Dosanjh wrote, 'Save the farmer, save the country. We all oppose the anti-farmer bills. When a user asked him to read the bills, Dosanjh replied that the farmer of Punjab is on the streets. Someone should talk to them. He himself comes from a peasant family. He tweeted, "We expect farmers to feed the nation, but they cannot decide on prices." Jasbir Jassi also said tightly on the media and the government that the farmers should remain silent, because no one is going to listen to their voice.

On the other hand, Buta Singh, the head of the Bharatiya Kisan Manch, sitting on the pucca front, and Kulwant Singh from the Jamhuri Kisan Sabha said that 31 farmer groups of the state had gathered against the center on one platform. A decision has been taken to completely stop Punjab on 25 September at a meeting of farmer groups in Moga. On this day, farmers will protest by stopping the rail across the state. The meeting will also be held on 23 September. Farmers from various districts of Punjab continue in the ongoing dharna at Puda Ground in Patiala. Three thousand farmers have participated in the dharna.
