 The Punjab Cabinet Ministers said that for the last two months, farmers from across the country have been struggling in the bitter cold on the Delhi border. They said that so far more than 100 farmers have lost their lives during the protest, despite this the Union government was still not taking any concrete steps to resolve the issue of farmers. ‘Not only this union government is sending ED notices to farmers and supporters of farmers to suppress the agitation’ said the ministers.
