Painful to see farmers lose lives in this manner, Amarinder says at all-party meeting

Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Tuesday said it is painful to see farmers lose lives in this manner (in the ongoing protest).

At an all-party meeting, the Chief Minister said 88 farmers had lost their lives during the struggle against the “anti-farmer” laws as they had died fighting for their rights.

Before the start of the meeting, the leaders observed a two-minute silence and paid tributes to those who had died.

Punjab Congress chief Sunil Jakhar said, “Chinese soldiers at Galwan are armed with spears and spiked batons against our jawans. Delhi Police is armed with spears, batons and spiked roads at Singhu border against our kisans. Learning from Chinese? The BJP has lost the right to say ‘Jai Jawan Jai Kisan’.”

At the meeting, chaired by Amarinder, leaders cutting across party lines tried to evolve a consensus on taking an all-party delegation to meet the Prime Minister.

Leaders said there was need for political intervention in the farmers’ stir and condemned the Delhi Police action on farmers on Republic Day.

At the meeting, AAP leader Bhagwant Mann said Amarinder should honour his commitment to lead an all-party delegation to meet the Prime Minister and Union Home Minister. Mann said that rising above party level, a help desk should be set up at the Delhi border. “Instead of stationing himself in Chandigarh, the Punjab Chief Minister should sit in Delhi,” he said.
