Chandigarh, November 29

Punjab Congress MLAs on Sunday urged Union Home Minister Amit Shah to withdraw cases registered against farmers by the Haryana Police.

'BJP not sincere in resolving issues'

  • PPCC chief Sunil Jakhar has said the "cold shoulder" given by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to farmers' concerns during his 'Mann Ki Baat' speaks volumes about the "apathetic" attitude of the BJP towards farmers' issues
  • He claimed it was clear that the BJP government was not sincere in resolving the farmers' issues through talks, nor did it have any respect for them

"When Amit Shah has stated he never claimed that farmers' protest was politically motivated, then the BJP should instruct the Haryana Government to withdraw the cases against farmers and set a cordial atmosphere for talks with farmers," said MLAs

Parminder Pinki, Kulbir Zira, Gurkirat Kotli and Fateh Jung Bajwa.

They said instead of giving political and communal colour to the agitation, the Central Government should understand that the farmers from Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh had joined the agitation, making it a national-level stir.

They further said the protest was not only getting support from across the country but from abroad also. The BJP leaders, instead of talking to the farmers, provoked them by their actions.
