Moga, December 6

BJP Lok Sabha member from Delhi and noted Punjabi singer Hansraj Hans faced the ire of farmers in Moga on Monday. He came here to preside over a function to pay tributes to Bhim Rao Ambedkar at a function organised at Shaheedi Park.

When BKU (Ekta) activists came to know about his visit, they started gathering outside the Shaheedi Park and raised slogans against him. They demanded that he should resign from the Lok Sabha.

After the function, when Hans came out, a group of farmers surrounded him. They asked him to support the farmers' agitation. However, the BJP leader maintained that the farmers were being misled by the opposition parties on farm laws.

Keeping in view of the sensitivity of the situation, a heavy police force was rushed to the spot. Police personnel, after a brief argument with farmers, managed to provide a safe passage to leave for Hans.

Interestingly, when local BJP leaders came to know that farmers had started gathering outside the park, they slipped away from the venue one by one, leaving Hans alone on the spot.

The farmers raised slogans against Prime Minister Narendra Modi in front of Hans and warned him that the agitations would be intensified.
