Senior SKM leader and BKU (Ekta Sidhupur) president Jagjit Singh Dalewal today formed a youth wing of his union to ensure participation of youths in the ongoing farmers’ agitation against the central agriculture laws. He also announced the formation of a women’s wing shortly.
Addressing the mediapersons, he said the success of the farmers’ struggle in Karnal had boosted their morale and encouraged them to continue protesting the laws. He said the SKM had been exercising maximum restraint, but BJP leaders were constantly provoking them. He said farmers would ensure no BJP candidate won in the Punjab elections. — OC
