“We will constantly protest outside parliament until they hear our demands,” Rajewal said.
He added that five people from each farmers’ union would join the protest.
SKM also called for a national protest on July 8th against rising gasoline, diesel and LPG prices.
People were asked to get out and park their vehicles along state and state highways from 10 a.m. to noon.
