Akalis lead 'kisan marches', Badal wants unity in fight against bills

Oct 01, 2020 14:06 IST

The Shiromani Akali Dal on Thursday began three separate 'kisan marches' from three religious Takhts in Punjab to Chandigarh against the contentious farm laws passed amid high drama in the parliament. SAD chief Sukhbir Singh Badal is leading one of the marches which started from the Akal Takht in Amritsar while his wife and former union minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal is leading another procession, and the third is being led by senior Akali leaders Prem Singh Chandumajra and Daljit Singh Cheema. While addressing the media in Amritsar, Badal said his party wants a rollback of the farm bills and that the farming community was against the “black laws”. The processions from the three Sikh Takhts will reach Chandigarh later in the day where the SAD leadership will hand over a memorandum against the farm laws to Punjab Governor V P Singh Badnore.
