Chandigarh, October 5

The SAD today said it was "shameful" that Union Minister Hardeep Puri had insulted protesting farmers and "khet mazdoor" by calling them "hooligans", asking him to apologise to them immediately. Puri later took to Twitter to insist he had called those individuals goons who had burnt a tractor in New Delhi during a farmer's protest.

Senior SAD leader and party MP Balwinder Singh Bhunder said: "It is a sad day that Puri, a Punjabi, has turned against his own solely for his lust of power. Punjabis will never forget this betrayal."

Bhunder said it was condemnable the minister was resorting to lies in his eagerness to please his political masters. "Puri has uttered a lie by saying he was present during the Cabinet meeting on June 3 when the agriculture Bills were discussed in the Cabinet and that Harsimrat Kaur Badal did not express any reservations. The truth is Puri did not attend the Cabinet meeting on June 3."

He said insulting farmers and their representatives was against the spirit of "Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan" and advised the BJP leader to first understand their pain and then issue statements.

Puri clarified: "Anybody who knows our farmers will know those who toil on their land will never burn their tractor. The tractor was not burnt by farmers, it was burnt by Congress goons." — TNS
