This is Sidhu’s first public appearance after he resigned from the state cabinet last year.
Sidhu, who represents Amritsar seat in the assembly, told reporters that the new bills would dismantle the minimum support price and the marketing system.
No district-level Congress leader was present in the protest and the party’s flags were also missing.
Asked about the absence of his party colleague, Sidhu said he was here to protest against the farm bills and extend his full support to the farming community.
Sidhu’s supporters were also carrying black flags and placards. The MLA and many of his supporters were seen without face masks.
Sidhu, who had been at loggerheads with Chief Minister Amarinder Singh, was stripped off key portfolios in the cabinet reshuffle in June last year.
