Barnala, 8 December

The farmers' struggle received a very encouraging response to the call for a total shutdown in India as part of a joint farmers 'struggle launched by 30 farmers' organizations against the anti-agriculture laws and the Electricity Amendment Bill 2020, and a Rs 10 million fine and five-year imprisonment for the straw burning. The city's business organizations, revolutionary democratic public organizations, anti-fascist Front Barnala, etc. played a key role in making the call for a shutdown of India a success.

All the institutions of the Barnala district were instrumental in making the call for an India shut down a success. Even senior citizens joined this demonstration in large numbers. Thousands of young farmers, men, women, children, and elderly people in their 90s gathered in the parking lot of Barnala railway station to vent their anger against the Modi government. Addressing the gathering in the parking lot of the station, farmers leaders Babu Singh Khudikalan, Amarjit Kaur, Ujagar Singh Behla, Prempal Kaur, Gurmeet Sukhpur, Anil Kumar, Khushi Singh, Amandeep Singh, Parminder Singh, Mahikdeep, Jagjit Singh, leaders of Bhartiya Kisan Union Ekta Dakonda Dhillon, Ashok Kumar, Sohan Singh, Jagraj Talewal, Jaspal Cheema, Virender Azad, Udevir Singh, Charanjit Kaur, Iqbal Kaur Udasi, Bikker Singh Aulakh, Mukand Singh Sevak, Ma. Niranjan Singh Thikriwal, Harbans Singh, Daljit Kaur said that The ongoing struggle against the three anti-agriculture laws and the Power Amendment Bill 2020 has reached its conclusion. The Prime Minister of the country is shamelessly exposing the anti-people face by issuing death warrants (three anti-agriculture ordinances) to the farmer's leaders added. The entire central government machinery is sweating with the support of the massive working people who are joining this peasant struggle. The rage of the people will force the Modi government to repeal these three anti-farmer black laws. Passing through the Sadar Bazaar from the railway station, the angry protest ended at Shaheed Bhagat Singh Chowk. The united peasant struggle is strengthened by the participation of a large number of working women. Gurdev Singh Mangewal, Bhan Singh Sanghera, Gurmeet Singh Thuliwal, Majeed Khan, Dr. Muhammad Hameed, Surjit Karamgarh, Dr. Hameed, Pritam Singh Tony, Dr. Baldev Billu Raiser, Jaspal Kaur, Kiranjit Kaur, Daljit Kaur, Paramjit Kaur, Manjit Kaur and others addressed the gathering.
