As per the sources, the farmer labourers’ union is unhappy with the discrimination against farmer labourers in Punjab. Some labour unions have claimed that some farmers and villages in Punjab were fixing labour prices for paddy sowing arbitrarily in “a self-styled manner”.”There are some cases that have come to our knowledge so far. There is a need to take a strict stand against any village that has decided to fix paddy sowing prices without consultation with farm labourers first. These villages go to the extent of passing resolutions to boycott any farmer or labourer who does not abide by their paddy sowing prices. This is economic discrimination against farm labourers, who are poor,” said Lachman Singh of Punjab Khet Mazdoor Union, which is closely associated with the Bhartiya Kisan Union Ugrahan.
