Amritsar, February 2
A delegation under the banner of the Bhartiya Kisan Union (BKU) today paid obeisance at the Golden Temple.
BKU (Haryana) general secretary Dumpy Pehalwan said the purpose was to offer prayers for the success of the farmers’ struggle against the central agricultural laws.
An akhand path was performed at Gurdwara Shaheed Baba Gurbaksh Singh. The prayer was conducted by sarpanch Charanjit Singh Sakanwali and his associates on behalf of the BKU (Sidhupur). Later, they took along the holy water from the sarovar of the shrine which would be distributed among the protesting farmers.
“The martyrdom during the struggle would not go waste. The farmers have vowed never to return before getting the farm laws scrapped,” he said. — TNS
