Muktsar, October 20

Where farmers were protesting all over Punjab against the Farm laws and were fighting day and night for repeal of Agriculture Farm Laws. Paddy coming from outside is also a headache for farmers there. A similar case has come to light in village Panniwala Fatta where farmers seized 10 trucks loaded with paddy coming from outside. It was coming from UP, Delhi and Rajasthan and many other states.

When the farmers checked, it was found out that this paddy was going to be sold in the grain mandia of Jalalabad. The farmers said that their paddy was rolling in the mandis and the paddy of the farmers was not being picked up from the mandis. It may be mentioned here that the farmers have informed the administration about the seized paddy trucks but no action has been taken by the administration. Stopped and chanted slogans against the government.
