Chandigarh, May 25
Sukhbir Badal has urged the party rank and file to hoist black flags to demand the repeal of three agricultural laws as well as show solidarity with protesting farmers.
He called upon Prime Minister Narendra Modi to hold direct unconditional talks with the farmers. He also requested the Punjab Government to ensure all 400 martyrs of the kisan andolan were given adequate compensation and jobs. He said only 189 farmers had been given a compensation of Rs 5 lakh each and none of the affected families had been offered jobs. — TNS
