Reports further said eight other labour unions have joined the Sanjha Mazdoor Morcha in organising the protest that started near the Patiala-Bathinda road.

Zameen Prapti Sangharsh Committee president Mukesh Malaud said the protest was followed after CM Bhagwant Mann refused to meet them after scheduling the meeting.

Reports said the farmers also demanded compensation for the death of their cattle due to lumpy skin disease, the release of reimbursement for their damaged crops, and the cancellation of FIRs for burning crop residue.
