Chandigarh, 25/12: Around 22 farmers’ unions, which were part of the United Kisan Morcha and participated in the year-long protests against three controversial agriculture bills, now form a political unit, the United Samaj Morcha, to participate in the Punjab Assembly elections. have come together. BS Rajewal will lead the farmers’ political front in Punjab. Three agricultural bodies including BKU (Dakonda) and BKU (Lakhowal) will soon decide whether to join the party or not. They will contest from all 117 seats. Farmer leaders have confirmed this on Saturday.
Year-long protests against agricultural laws and the eventual announcement by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to withdraw those laws set the stage for farmers in Punjab ahead of the assembly elections. It is being speculated that the Kisan Sangh may demand an alliance with the Aam Aadmi Party in their big decision to contest this important election. Farmer leaders said any such alliance would be announced later.
