MOHALI,, Sept. 16 -- Continuing their agitation against Centre's agriculture ordinances and power amendment bill, several farmers' organisations on Wednesday held a protest in Mohali.

The farmers, including members of Bhartiya Kisan Union (BKU) Rajewal and Lakhowal, began their protest march from Amb Sahib Gurudwara in Phase 8 towards the Punjab governor's house in Chandigarh, but were stopped at the Chandigarh-Mohali border near YPS roundabout.

However, eight members were later allowed to proceed to the governor's residence. When they reached at the gate, the ADC to governor came to receive their memorandum of demands, but the farmers refused to hand it over saying that they will do so only if the governor agreed to meet them.
