Former Rajya Sabha MP from Punjab Ashwani Kumar today said the face-off between the farmers and Centre over the farm laws was fraught with grave consequences for law and order and internal security.

"The sight of farmers being bombarded with water cannons on a cold November night must put the country to shame. The nation's sensitivities are entirely with the farmers and in the best tradition of democracy, the Centre should accommodate the farmers' concerns in the law ostensibly enacted for their welfare.There is no justification whatsoever for the government to stand on prestige. The price of obduracy in terms of weakening of the federal structure, alienation of farmers and national security must not be paid by the nation. It is absolutely necessary to remove the farmers' sense of insecurity and to restore their pride," Kumar said.
