Don’t fall into Centre’s trap: Congress

Share This

Chandigarh, November 27

Punjab Congress leaders today expressed apprehensions that the Centre was trying to weaken farmers' agitation by restricting them to Nirankari Ground in Burari, instead of allowing them to protest on roads leading to the national capital.

Ludhiana MP Ravneet Singh Bittu said since the farmers had surrounded Delhi from all sides, the BJP was trying to take them off roads so that their agitation was weakened.

"I appeal to the farmers not to leave roads and continue with the peaceful agitation. At the moment, the agitation by farmers was bearing fruits and the Centre was under pressure to accept their demands," said Bittu.

PPCC chief Sunil Jakhar said the Delhi Police had converted the grounds at Burari jail. Questioning Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar asking farmers to postpone their agitation till December 3, Jakhar asked: "What was stoapping it from starting the dialogue straight away?"

It is going to be a long-drawn battle against the Central farm laws, he said, adding, "It would not be over by December 3 as I do not expect much from the meeting. Seeing the enormity of the protest, the Prime Minister should immediately suspend the laws."
