Stop Haryana from becoming another Madhya Pradesh, Kiran tells Khattar

NIK BUREAU

Chandigarh:

Kiran Choudhry, Leader of the Haryana Congress Legislature Party, has asked the BJP regime in Haryana led by Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar to stop dividing the agitating farmers, concede their genuine demands without any delay, and prevent Haryana from becoming another Madhya Pradesh.

The former excise and taxation minister said, “It looks the BJP Government has lost connection with the farmers. It has failed to gauge their anger on account of non-acceptance of their demands. Instead, statements from Mr Khattar and other BJP leaders that loan waiver would not be given, are adding fuel to the fire.”

Should the BJP government decide to ignore their demands, the farmers’ agitation may well spill out into the streets and snowball into an unmanageable situation a la Madhya Pradesh. Let the government wake up to reality and keep its promises made to the farmers, she demanded.

The farmers of Haryana are agitating and blocking highways to press their 12-point charter of demands which includes implementation of the  Swaminathan Commission report, loan waiver, retirement pension of Rs. five lakh, health insurance, increased MSP and other steps to improve their economic lot, she added.
