Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has condemned the Haryana Government’s forcible efforts to prevent farmers from going to Delhi. He said that it is a sad irony that constitutional rights of farmers are being suppressed in this manner on Constitution Day. The CM asked Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar not to push the farmers to the margins in this way and let them reach their voice to Delhi.
The captain said these things on Thursday by tweeting. He urged the BJP to direct its state governments not to adopt such tactics against the farmers. He said that the hands feeding the country should be held, not pushed to the margins. Reminding the Constitution Day, the Captain said that the Constitution embodies the Idea of India.
‘Rights of farmers pressing on constitution day’
He said that it is a sad irony that the constitutional rights of farmers are being suppressed on Constitution Day. The captain tagged ML Khattar in his tweet and said, Khattar, let the farmers go. Do not push them to the brink. Let them raise their voice to Delhi in peace. For two months, the farmers have been demonstrating peacefully in Punjab without any problems. Now why is the Haryana government provoking them by resorting to force?

The CM questioned Manohar Lal Khattar whether farmers do not even have the right to pass the highway peacefully. Significantly, farmers belonging to 500 farmer organizations from 6 states are going to Delhi. They are being prevented from entering the border areas of Haryana in Delhi. News of clashes with security forces of farmers has also come to light in many places. Farmer leader Yogendra Yadav has been taken into custody along with 50 farmers.
