Chandigarh, October 14

Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh today said he was shocked by the "humiliating" treatment meted out to farmers by the Centre.

"The Centre has rubbed salt into the wounds of farmers by sending a bureaucrat to meet them. Don't our farmers deserve even the courtesy of the Agriculture Minister meeting them personally?" the Chief Minister said.

Humiliated by Government

The least the Centre could have done was to empathise with farmers. Instead, it chose to insult them. —Capt Amarinder Singh, CM

"The least the Government of India could have done was to empathise with farmers and share their pain. Instead, it chose to insult the farm unions. After today's fiasco, can the BJP ever expect farmers to trust it? On the one hand, it claims to be going all out to convince the farmers on the benefits of farm laws but on the other, it treats farmers badly. This has totally exposed its malice and ill-intent towards farmers," the Chief Minister said.
