Chandigarh, 29 November :
Haryana Pradesh Congress Committee President, Kumari Selja today said that the condition laid by the Union Home Minister, Amit Shah, for talks with the farmers, clearly shows that the intention of BJP government at the center is not good. She demanded the BJP-JJP government to immediately withdraw the FIR registered against more than ten thousand farmers in Haryana and asked the government to immediately release the arrested farmers. She has termed the points mentioned by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Mann Ki Baat about anti-agricultural laws, as hollow. In a statement issued here today, Kumari Selja said that government had earlier committed heavy atrocities on the farmers agitating against the agricultural laws, now FIR has been lodged against the same farmers. The BJP government at the center and the BJP-JJP government of the state are bent on completely crushing the farmers.
Kumari Selja said that only hollow statements have been made by the Prime Minister in the Mann Ki Baat. The Prime Minister Modi has only insulted the farmers in Mann Ki Baat. The Prime Minister Modi is only concerned about the interest of his capitalist friends. In order to benefit his friends, the Prime Minister has sacrificed the interests of farmers through black anti-agricultural laws.
Raising question on the conditions laid by the central government for negotiation with the farmers, Kumari Selja said that the intention of the BJP government at the Center was not clear from the very beginning. Now, placing a condition for talks with farmers by the Union Home Minister shows that it is not the intention of this government to listen to demands of farmers. The government can go to any extent through these black laws to benefit its capitalist friends, she added.
In her earlier statement Kumari Selja said that Chief Minister Manohar Lal does not have enough courage to know the pain and suffering of the farmers of Haryana, raise their voice, put forward the agony and demands of farmers to the Central Government, because he fears his high command. That is why the Chief Minister is deliberately saying that farmers from Haryana are not participating in this movement. The truth is that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is concerned about his capitalist friends and Chief Minister Manohar Lal is afraid of his high command. For this reason, the farmers of Haryana are protesting today.
Raising a question over stopping the farmers to gather at Delhi , Kumari Selja asks , “When the Prime Minister addressed thousands of people in rallies during Bihar elections, was it not a step to spread corona? Today, when farmers want to agitate for their rights, they are being suppressed by using the excuse of Corona. This highlights the double character of the BJP government.”
Kumari Selja said that the entire nation witnessed the oppressive action taken by the BJP-JJP government of Haryana on the farmers. The Chief Minister Manohar Lal did not learn anything from the anger that the farmers had expressed against this government by voting for the Congress Party in the Baroda by-election.
