LOHIAN KHAS Activists of the Kisan  Sangharsh Committee on Sunday blocked  traffic by staging a dharna on Lohian Khas-Makhu road  seeking a total debt waiver and  condemned the Union and the state governments for not fulfilling the promises made to farmers and other sections of society. They also burnt effigy of the Modi Government.

Addressing a protest rally the committee leaders said the governments made very tall promises with farmers during their election campaigns, which were forgotten soon after the government was formed. They threatened to intensify their stir

The main demands of the committee include implementation of the Dr Swaminathan Commission report, a total debt waiver, re-opening of the closed sugar mills, the continuation of food grain procurement through government-owned agencies, pension for farmers above 60 years etc.
