SACA members have started a protest against the bills, squatting on tracks at many places. The farmer outfits have also decided to call an indefinite rail blockade from October 1. Amarinder Singh said the state government was fully with the farmers in their fight against the bills and no FIRs would be registered for violation of Section 144, which bars assembly of more than four people.
The Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Committee is leading the three-day agitation against the bills. Farmers are worried that the bills will lead to dismantling of the MSP system though the government has repeatedly assured them the system will remain unchanged.
