Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) on Wednesday held tractor rallies known as the ‘Kisaani Bachaao March’ in support of the ongoing farmers’ protest at the borders of Haryana.
 
The ‘Kisaani Bachaao March’ was organized, with all party workers, office bearers, and citizens of the State becoming a part of the statewide movement to show solidarity with the farmers protesting for their rights at the borders of Haryana.
 
The collective strength of the state of Punjab was evident with a huge number of people coming forward to peacefully demonstrate their unwavering support to the farming community of the state, said a party spokesperson.
 
“I extend my gratitude to all those who have united today to advocate for the farmers of Punjab. Agriculture and the farming community constitute the bedrock of Punjab's economy, necessitating our unequivocal support for our farmers,” said PPCC chief Amrinder Singh Raja Warring addressing the attendees of the tractor march in Jandiala.
 
He said: “It is disconcerting that despite Punjab's historical allegiance to the nation, the Central Government persists in actions contrary to the interests of the State and its populace, particularly the farming community.”
 
Warring emphasized that the impediment of Punjab farmers’ passage to the capital, where they merely seek to assert their rights, is “untenable”.
 
“Punjab sustains the nation, yet the policies of the BJP-led Central Government threaten our very livelihoods. Hence, it is imperative that we persist in our peaceful demonstrations, ensuring our solidarity with Punjab's farmers while upholding law and order,” he added.
