Farmers in the movement, markets were deserted
The farmer movement in Sunam Udham Singh Wala (Sangrur) is having an impact on business. Hundreds of farmers from every village have gone to Delhi. Apart from this, farmers are participating in local movements in Punjab along with their families. The scope of wide-ranging religious and shared events in villages has also been limited. Most of the peasant families have now been confined to the purchase of essential commodities and have been away from the markets due to their continuous participation in the movement. Due to this, the wholesale to retail business is being affected.
