Farmer Protest 2020
Approx 2300+ trains has been cancelled due to farmer protest in punjab. Now the decision has been taken that the trains in punjab will run for next 15 days starting from November 23. If government listen to their demands then everything will be back to normal and if again government doesn’t pay attention to their demands then again farmer protest will be started after these 15 days.
This decision has been taken after meeting of farmer representative and Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh. This decision will be a good decision for railway.
Amarinder Singh tweeted that
Had a fruitful meeting with Kisan Unions. Happy to share that starting 23rd Nov night, Kisan Unions have decided to end rail blockades for 15 days. I welcome this step since it will restore normalcy to our economy. I urge Central Govt to resume rail services to Punjab forthwith.
Recently the farmer representative also said that they will allow running passenger trains if railway starts running goods train first. The railway refused to run the trains. According to them both the trains will run or no train will run.
The farmers are protesting agains three new laws which has been introduced by the government. Thousands of farmers are protesting against these laws and it has been more than 2 month’s. They are still protesting and due to this there is so much damage done to the Punjab’s economy.
