Anil Vij said that Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh telling farmers to do whatever they want in Haryana or Delhi and don’t do it in Punjab is a very irresponsible statement.
On Monday, Captain Amarinder Singh made a statement regarding the long-running farmers’ agitation, after which Haryana Home Minister Anil Vij targeted Capt. In fact, Chief Minister Amarinder Singh said that the farmers’ protest is having a bad effect on the economy of Punjab. He advised the farmers involved in the agitation that if they want to put pressure on the central government, then hold a demonstration in New Delhi. The Captain has asked the farmers to take the agitation out of Punjab. “If you want to put pressure on the central government, hold your protest in Delhi, don’t disturb Punjab,” he said.
What was it then, Haryana Home Minister Anil Vij retaliated on the statement of Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh. Anil Vij said that Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh telling farmers to do whatever they want in Haryana or Delhi and don’t do it in Punjab is a very irresponsible statement. This proves that Amarinder Singh has done the work of instigating the farmers.
Earlier, attending the foundation stone laying ceremony of a government college at Mukhliana village in Punjab’s Hoshiarpur district, Singh said that even today farmers are protesting at 113 places in the state. Their protest is affecting our development.
Let us tell you that most of the farmers sitting on the borders of Delhi are from Haryana, Punjab and western Uttar Pradesh. In all these places, many promises and claims are being made to persuade the farmers. At present, the farmers are sticking to their demands. The farmers associated with the movement say that they will stand firm till the government does not withdraw the three agricultural laws, accepting their demands.
Earlier, Captain Amarinder Singh had said that BJP is not directly responsible for the growing resentment and uneasiness among farmers, but not Punjab. The Captain had condemned the Haryana Chief Minister’s allegation and said that Manohar Lal was defending himself from the attack on farmers in Karnal. The Captain’s response came in the context of allegations by Manohar Lal and Dushyant Chautala that Punjab was behind the farmers’ agitation against agricultural laws.
