All the 10 farmers’ associations in Punjab will protest on the opening day of monsoon session of Parliament on September 14 demanding immediate repeal of Electricity Act 2020 and the rollback of the three agriculture ordinances cleared by the Centre. The protest will be part of a call given by 250 farmers organisations from across the country.

The decision was taken at meeting of the 10 organizations on Tuesday under the chairmanship of Ruldu Singh Mansa.
