Amritsar (Punjab) [India], October 27 (ANI): Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Committee on Monday shifted their Rail Roko protest against farm acts from Devi Dasspura railway station to Jandiala station.

Sarvan Singh Pandher, a protester said that the protest has been shifted here as some of them have been electrocuted due mist during the morning.

Speaking to ANI, Singh said, "Due to mist drops falling from overhead wires on Devidasspura rail track, few of us got electrocuted, so we had to shift here"

"We will intensify our protest until the farm acts are revoked," he added.

The farmers have been protesting against the three agriculture laws -- The Farmers' Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020, and the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement of Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020, and The Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020 -- since they were passed by the Parliament.
