Punjab CM to farmers: Observe bandh following Covid safety norms

Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has appealed to the farmers to strictly maintain law and order, and adhere to all Covid safety protocols, during Friday’s bandh against the Agriculture Bills.

While the state government was fully with the farmers in their fight against the Bills, and no FIRs will be registered for violation of Section 144, there should be no disturbance of the law and order during the bandh, the Chief Minister said.

He appealed to the farmers to ensure that the citizens of Punjab are not put to any inconvenience during the protest Bandh, especially given the Covid crisis in the state.

The Chief Minister also urged the farmers, and other organisations supporting the bandh, to maintain social distancing and wear masks at all times. The state was already in the midst of a surge in Covid cases, and any violation of precautionary norms could lead to the situation spiralling out of control, he warned.

He exhorted the farmers to take full care that the lives and property of the people of Punjab are not, in any way, endangered due to their agitation.
