The Congress-led Punjab government has provided government jobs to the kin of farmers who lost their lives in movement against the Farm Laws in the last over one year.

Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi accompanied by the Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Minister Randeep Singh Nabha on Saturday handed over appointment letters to 11 family members of the farmers. They were given clerical jobs in the department, an official release informed.

Calling farmers the backbone of the economic structure of the State, the Chief Minister said that the State Government would always undertake every possible step to ensure the welfare of the victim families.

The state government has already given jobs to the kin of the 157 deceased farmers. The government had earlier announced Rs 5 lakh as financial aid and a job for one member each of the deceased farmers’ families.


Leaders of the protesting farmers claimed that more than 700 peasants from Punjab, Haryana and other states had died during the agitation against the now-repealed farm laws.
