Farmers in Punjab are going to besiege the houses of cabinet ministers and MLAs on September 12. The farmers had already submitted a memo to the Police Commissioner and the DC Amritsar on Saturday. They said that the state government is not taking their demands seriously. The state government has also managed various projects, which are not in the best interests of the people.
Farmer leader Sarwan Singh Pandher said that canal water is being handed over to private companies by the World Bank. The water will be purified and sold to the public. A stop to this project is demanded by farmers. Similarly, Electricity Research Bill 2022 is being brought to privatize the electricity department completely. Demands for its cancellation have also been made. In addition, farmers want their loans and outstanding balances to be waived off.
