Farmers threaten to take their protest to the Punjab Assembly if their demands aren’t met

December 5, 2018





The Pakistan Kissan Ittehad, a farmers union, has been protesting in Lahore since the night of December 4.

They want manure and urea to be sold at their old rates. They also want the government to announce the rate for sugarcane so they can begin selling it and for it to make the outstanding payments it owes them.

The police have been deployed in Lahore’s Thokar Niaz Baig, where the protests are being held. Due to the protest, long lines of cars are held up on Multan Road. The union says that if the government does not fulfill their demands, they will take their protest to the Punjab Assembly.
