Punjab Farmers unions to lift rail blockade completely

Chandigarh: The Punjab farmers have decided to complete lift their rail blockade from Monday – November 23, to allow all goods and passenger trains, in response to an impassioned appeal by CM at a meeting with Kisan Unions.

Punjab, the CM’s media adviser Raveen Thukral tweeted. “The decision was taken in response to the impassioned appeal by the chief minister at a meeting with kisan (farmer) unions,” he said.

“The kisan unions will allow the resumption of all trains from day after tomorrow (Monday) evening. There will be no hampering of operations for 15 days during which the central government should open talks. If talks don’t happen in a fortnight then the agitation will resume after 15 days,” the government spokesman said.

Soon after the announcement, the Chief Minister urged the central government to reciprocate by restoring all train services in the state, and also to hold further talks with the farmer representatives to resolve the crisis over the Farm Laws.
