Aam Aadmi Party Ludhiana on Friday held a protest against the Land Acquisition Bill during Kisan Mela at PAU.
District convenor Ahbaab Singh Grewal said that that protest venue was deliberately chosen to raise awareness amongst the farmers who will be the worst affected if this bill is enacted into a Law.
“We appeal to the farmers to join us in our efforts to stop this bill and to put pressure on the political parties to block its passage in the Rajya Sabha. This protest is also to expose the hypocrisy of the SAD which is allied with the BJP and is fooling the people of the state and the country by shedding crocodile tears against the bill and on the other supporting it in Parliament. AAP will oppose this anti-farmer act and will carry out a sustained campaign against it,” said Aggarwal.
The volunteers of AAP were seen holding placards at gate number 2 of PAU and distributed pamphlets against the bill to the farmers.
