Chandigarh, November 21 (PTI) Various farmers’ organizations in Punjab, opposing the three agricultural laws of the Center, announced on Saturday that they are withdrawing their Rail Stop movement from November 23 for the movement of passenger trains. The decision to allow movement of passenger trains in the state came after a meeting of representatives of farmer leaders with Chief Minister Amarinder Singh. The Chief Minister invited the representatives of the farmers here for talks. Chief Minister’s media advisor Raveen Thukral tweeted that Punjab’s farmers will withdraw their agitation for movement of goods and trains on Monday from November (23 November) on the Chief Minister’s emotional appeal. Before meeting the Chief Minister, the farmers’ organizations held their meeting to discuss the rail roko movement. Farmers’ organizations had been carrying out a ‘rail roko’ movement since 24 September in protest against agricultural laws. Earlier he had given consent for the movement of goods trains in the state. However, the deadlock continued between the protesting farmers and the railways over the restoration of trains. Farmers’ organizations said that if the center first starts operating goods trains in the state, they will allow passenger trains to run. But the railways refused to re-run the freight trains and said that it would operate both freight trains and passenger trains or operate none. Farmers’ organizations were also under pressure from industries, which have lost about Rs 30,000 crore due to non-running of goods trains in the state.
