The ardas and shardanjali samagam was organized by Sikh Youth of Punjab (SYP) to pay homage to all farmers who lost their lives while participating in the agitation. The organizers prayed for the success of Kissan agitation and reiterated that till the repeal of three black farm laws the struggle will continue despite egotistical behaviour and repressive measures of the Union government.

The organizations backed the Bharat bandh call given by SKM on March 26. They appealed to shopkeepers and traders to shut their business establishments to show solidarity with farmers agitation and press upon the government to concede to farmers’ rightful demand. Terming them as part of the andolan, the leaders backed Lakha Sidhana and Jugraj Singh, who have been declared fugitive by Delhi police after the Jan 26 incident.
