BJP government is crossing all limits of shamelessness-Shelja
Chandigarh, (Aditi)– President, Haryana Pradesh Congress Committee Kumari Selja said that the BJP government is crossing all limits of shamelessness. The BJP government is continuously committing shameful acts to suppress the voice of the farmers.
Today, all the tactics are being adopted by the BJP to declare the farmers as traitors. What type of patriotism is BJP exhibiting? The BJP should remember that the families of these farmers have sacrificed their lives for the country. These farmers have family members on the borders to protect the country. The Congress Party will organize a peace march in every block of Haryana from February 3 to 5 in support of the farmers. In view of the BJP's policy of divide and rule in the farmers’ movement, today, on the martyrdom day of Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi, the Haryana Pradesh Congress Committee has decided that these peace marches will be held in Haryana to maintain peace, mutual brotherhood and harmony.
Kumari Selja was addressing a press conference held at Haryana Congress Headquarters in Chandigarh. Earlier, she also paid homage to the Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi at the Haryana Congress headquarters.
Kumari Selja said that since the day this movement has been started against the anti-agriculture black laws, attempts were being made by the BJP to discredit this movement. For the last 70 days, farmers have been making peaceful agitations on the borders of Delhi. There was no incident of violence anywhere. People of BJP are attacking farmers, who are peacefully agitating at the protest site where the police remained a mute spectator. Agitated farmers are being threatened and intimidated by police administration at the behest of BJP. False cases are being filed against farmers. The shameful deeds on the Red Fort on the occasion of Republic Day also reveal the involvement of people associated with the BJP. The person named Deep Sidhu, who has taken the responsibility of hoisting the flag over Red Fort, his photos with prime minister and home minister have surfaced the internet. Deep Sidhu, who did a shameful act on the Red Fort, confesses in front of everyone that he was involved in this act, but it is very surprising that the person has not been arrested yet. This person is moving freely. On the other hand, false cases are being filed against innocent farmer leaders. How could these chaotic elements have been allowed to enter the Red Fort where no one is allowed to enter without permission? This is a big question. The Delhi violence and the shameful acts done on the Red Fort should be investigated in a fair manner, she added.
Kumari Selja said that in the last four months, more than 180 persons have lost their lives in the farmers’ movement. The BJP government is directly responsible for the loss of lives of the farmers. At the behest of the central government, the BJP-JJP government of Haryana is also taking every step to crush the voice of the farmers. Turning off the internet in Haryana is another living proof of this. This is another planned attack on freedom of expression. No matter how many conspiracies the BJP government hatches, the voice of the farmers cannot be suppressed, said Kumari Selja.
Others present on the occasion included former Deputy Chief Minister Chandramohan Bishnoi, former Minister Subhash Batra, former Minister Krishnamurthy Hooda, former CPS Ramkishan Gurjar, Haryana Congress General Secretary Dr. Ajay Chaudhary, Haryana Mahila Congress Executive President Sudha Bhardwaj, Haryana Congress Media Coordinator Nilay Saini, Haryana Congress Treasurer Rohit Jain and other Congress leaders.
