FEROZEPUR, OCTOBER 17, 2020: Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) has decided to organize ‘Border Khulvao, Kisssan Bachao Rally’ on Nov. 10. This was disclosed today by Iman Singh son of Simranjit Singh Mann, President, SAD (Amritsar) at a press conference held at Press Club, Ferozepur.
Gurcharan Singh Bhullar, PAC Member and district President SAD(A), Tejinder Singh Deo, Vie President Youth Punjab, Jatinder Singh Thind General Secretary and others were also present.
Speaking to the media persons, Iman Singh said, the opening of Hussainiwala border will be in the interest of people of both the countries and we are inviting all concerned parties and people to attend this rally.
Speaking on the three Farm Bills, he said, the BJP has given the rational to pass three new laws as a desire to open the market and increase the opportunities for farmers in Punjab. We believe that these opportunities for the economic corridor will increase manifold if the Hussainiwala border allows us to access markets in the West including Pakistan, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Iran, Uzbekistan, and other Central Asian countries where our prized Basmati can fetch handsome prices and can avail an opportunity for sale in countries where the same are in shortage.
But in export via Gujrati traders, in each link of the export it is not a Punjabi farmer who is gaining adding he said, if the Hussainiwala border is open, Punjabi traders and truckers will also gain from profit so earned.
Apart from grains and vegetables, there is a great shortage of spices in central Asian countries such as Long and elaichi grown by our southern farming friends these will also find markets in the same countries, he added.
Mann said the opening borders for trade is the only solution to the many ills facing farmers who are now going to be exploited by friends of the BJP.
To provide a roadmap to the economic growth of Punjab its farmers, labourers, trading classes causing employment and economic growth of the state, he made an appeal to all to attend this rally.
