Kisan’s board deferred the protest on assurance of fulfillment of their demands. Raja also said that Punjab’s CM Bazdar was himself belongs to a farmer background who understands his farmers’ problems better than anyone.

Raja said: “The government is well aware of the farmers’ problems and taking definite steps to address them. The government ensured the farmers that all the matters will be solved on high priority, farmers should not create problems for the public by protesting and road blocking.”
