Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president Sukhbir Singh Badal on Sunday condemned the “repression” by the Bharatiya Janata Get together (BJP) authorities in Haryana in opposition to peacefully and democratically protesting farmers.
In an announcement, 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 haven’t 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 stunning 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 may 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 into to the plight of the farmers.
“The Punjab unit of BJP is rubbing salt in farmers’ wounds. I fail to grasp this get together’s general mindset in opposition to farmers. On the one hand, they’re inviting farmers for talks whereas on the opposite they’re upsetting them by way of protests and provocative acts in opposition to them,” he stated.
