Immediately asking the security to stop, CM Channi straight away went to the site of the dharna and expressed complete solidarity with the farmers, reiterated his vociferous support to the just struggle being waged by the farming community, said the statement.
The Chief Minister said that the Punjab government stands shoulder to shoulder with the farmers against these draconian farm laws.
"We are duty-bound to safeguard the interests of the farmers and would continue to wholeheartedly extend support to your agitation until the anti-farmer agricultural laws are done away with,", assured the Chief Minister.
Pointing out further, the Chief Minister said that the three agriculture black laws are the culmination of the conspiracy to subjugate India's farmers for the advantage of a handful of crony capitalist friends of the Modi government. (ANI)
