Chandigarh: The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) has decided to observe September 17 as the 'black day' to mark the completion of one year of enactment of three Central farm laws, a party leader said on Sunday.

A decision in this regard was taken at a meeting here on Saturday presided over by party President Sukhbir Badal.

It is informed that the party activists along with farmers will hold a protest march demanding repeal of the agricultural laws on that day from Gurdwara Rakab Ganj Sahib to Parliament in New Delhi.

Party Senior Vice President Daljit Cheema told the media that party leaders and workers along with farmers of Punjab will participate in the protest march. He also claimed that Akali Dal is the only political party that had sacrificed ministership and has stood like a rock for the cause of farmers while others merely spoke about resignation letters, which were never tendered.

He stated that Akali Dal and will continue to do so till the black laws were not repealed.
