At present, routine passenger train service remains suspended because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The call for 'rail roko' agitation was given by the Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Committee and later, different farmers' outfits also
extended their support.

village in Amritsar and Basti Tanka wala in Ferozepur.

and labourers.

Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Committee president Satnam Singh Pannu said that they have appealed to representatives of
political parties, ministers, MPs and MLAs not to take part in the farmers' agitation.

They vowed to gherao BJP leaders and socially boycott those who voted in favour of the farm bills.
As many as 31 farmers' outfits have given a call for the complete shutdown of Punjab on September 25 to protest against the
