Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president Sukhbir Singh Badal on Sunday condemned the “repression” by the Bharatiya Janata Social gathering (BJP) authorities in Haryana in opposition to peacefully and democratically protesting farmers.
In a press release, Mr Badal stated: “The response of Haryana’s BJP authorities clearly confirmed that this get together and its governments on the centre and within the states are stuffed with hatred for the farmers and don’t have any intention in any respect of resolving the crises created by the passage of three Acts on the advertising and marketing of the farmers’ produce.”
“It’s surprising that no effort was made in any respect by these in energy in Haryana to speak to the farmers who had been protesting peacefully. As a substitute, they abused ‘the would possibly of the state’ to impress and suppress democratic protests,” he added.
Mr Badal stated that the police repression together with the usage of water cannons confirmed how insensitive the BJP has turn out to be to the plight of the farmers.
“The Punjab unit of BJP is rubbing salt in farmers’ wounds. I fail to know this get together’s total mindset in opposition to farmers. On the one hand, they’re inviting farmers for talks whereas on the opposite they’re upsetting them by protests and provocative acts in opposition to them,” he stated.
