Punjab CM Amarinder Singh sitting on dharna in Bhagat Singh's village

Chandigarh: On the
 previous day, the Agriculture Bill was passed in the Lok Sabha amid heavy uproar by the opposition. The President has also approved all three agricultural bills. But the farmers of the country are continuously protesting against these bills. The impact of this performance is being seen most in Haryana-Punjab.

On Monday, Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has sat on a sit-in protest against the agricultural bill in Khatkar Kalan village of Shaheed Bhagat Singh Nagar. Along with Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh, ministers, MLAs and activists are also sitting on dharna with them. Along with him, Congress general secretary and Punjab in-charge Harish Rawat is also involved in the dharna.

Before starting the dharna, Amarinder Singh paid tribute in front of Bhagat Singh's statue. Harish Rawat has visited Punjab for the first time after being appointed in-charge of Punjab. Earlier, he was about to start his tour by bowing in the Golden Temple, but on such an occasion, the Congress changed the plan.

Harish Rawat joined the dharna and started the tour in view of the fierce protest against the agricultural law in Punjab. Amarinder Singh called the President's approval of the agricultural bills unfortunate and disappointing. He said, Congress and other opposition parties were not given an opportunity to express their concerns in Parliament.

The President's approval is a setback for farmers who are protesting against these laws of the Center on the streets. The implementation of these dangerous laws in the present form will ruin the agricultural sector of Punjab. Punjab Congress President Sunil Jakhar said, "Our motive behind bringing them (Rawat) to Khatkar Kalan is to give direction to the energy of the farmers." He is a mature human being and now the emphasis is on finding a solution to the anger of the farmers against the Center by showing them the way.
