by Abbas Adil

As many as 22 farmer unions of Punjab, under the banner of Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM), have announced to hold protests across Punjab on June 24 in support of the protesting students against the Centre’s newly launched Agnipath recruitment scheme.

Addressing the media, Bharatiya Kisan Union (Dakaunda) president Buta Singh Burjgill said a meeting of 22 farmer unions was held on Wednesday at Desh Bhagat Yadgar hall in Jalandhar. He said they had decided to raise the issue of water crisis in Punjab and lend support to the youth protesting the Agnipath scheme.

He said the unions would hold peaceful protests on June 24 outside the district administration complexes across Punjab and would submit a memorandum for President to Deputy Commissioners, SDMs or Tehildars, seeking immediate withdrawal of the Agnipath scheme.
