www.punjabenews.com: The farmers’ organisations and the police face to face after authorities forced them to lift the sit-in from the Zira liquor factory. The police tried to stop the farmers away from the barricades but the farmers remained adamant on moving forward.
The police lathi-charged the farmers. On the contrary, the farmers also attacked the police.
Because of this, the situation here has become very tense. Around 12 km from Zira, a gathering of the Samyukta Kisan Morcha is underway. The Samyukta Kisan Morcha, which was divided into two factions against the police brutality, has come together. Today, the non-political Kisan Morcha also supported the zira protesters.
