CHANDIGARH: Prominent farmer leader, President of the Chandigarh unit of the All India Jatt Mahasabha and National Delegate of the Mahasabha, Sardar Rajinder Singh Badheri has said that tomorrow's 'Bharat Bandh' at the call of the 'Samyukt Kisan Morcha' there must be massive response from Punjab and Chandigarh.

In a statement issued here today, Mr. Badheri said that not only the farmers of Punjab and Chandigarh but also the common man has decided to close their shops, other businesses, private offices, trucks, buses, taxis, auto rickshaws. The common man including the farmers would definitely cooperate in keeping all the railways and roads completely closed.

Mr. Badheri said that at the invitation of National Leader Mr. Chaudhry Rakesh Tikait, Mr. Chaudhary Yudhvir Singh, Chandigarh and surrounding areas of Punjab like Mohali, Kharar, Kurali, Nawan Gaon, Mullanpur, Garibdas, Siswan Chowk, Zirakpur, Dera Bassi and Lalru would be completely closed. Will be closed. He said that all the leaders and activists of the All India Jatt Mahasabha were fully prepared to make tomorrow's bandh a success. To make the bandh a success, Jatt Maha Sabha Punjab state president Harpal Singh Harpura has directed Mohali district president Sukhdev Singh Kansala and Ropar district president Zaildar Satwinder Singh Chedia to coordinate in both the districts.

Mr. Badheri said that for the last four months, the agitating farmers have been fighting on the borders of Delhi but instead of resolving the issue, the Center and the ruling BJP leaders have been confusing the issue with inflammatory statements.

Mr. Badheri said that farmers would not back down without repealing 3 anti-agriculture bills. The government will also have to make concrete laws on MSPs. Electricity Bill and Straw Bill 2020 will have to be repealed. Besides, prices of diesel, petrol and cooking gas will have to be halved. He said that Samyukta Kisan Morcha has made all these demands not only for itself but for the welfare of all the people of the country.

Mr. Badheri said that any person, journalist, film actor, leader or organization who raises his/her voice in favor of the farmers, the Central Government would crack down on them by Central agencies like Enforcement Directorate, Income Tax Department or CBI. No Central Government has resorted to such heinous tactics before. He strongly condemned the poor politics of the BJP.

Farmer leader Badheri further said that when Independent MLA Balraj Kundu had also raised his voice against the agricultural laws, the government also raided his premises by the Income Tax Department. He said that the supporters of the farmers should not feel alone in any way.
