NEW DELHI: Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Sunday held Bhartiya Kisan Union (BKU) chief responsible for the vandalism at the venue where Khattar was supposed to address the ‘Kisan Mahapanchayat‘ organized by the state government.
Protesting farmers had damaged the helipad where Khattar was scheduled to land prompting Haryana Police to use tear gas shells and water cannon to disperse the protesting farmers.
“If I have to hold someone responsible for this, then a video of Gurnam Singh Chaduni [BKU chief] has been circulating since day before yesterday wherein he had tried to instigate people,” said the chief minister addressing a press conference after being obstructed to attend the farmers’ event.
Farmers have been protesting at different borders of the national capital since November 26 against the three newly enacted farm laws: Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020, the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020, and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.
