Chandigarh, 27 November, 2020 (Yes Punjab News)
Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Punjab leaders and workers, rising above their political considerations, today joined the peasant movement in large numbers to extend a whole-hearted support to their justified cause. Hundreds of Aam Aadmi Party workers and leaders arrived in Delhi on a ‘Dilli Chalo’ call given by the farmer bodies, for November 26 and 27, without the party’s flag and banner.
Party senior leader and Deputy Leader of Opposition Sarabjit Kaur Manunke and Youth Wing Co-President Gagan Anmol Mann, who managed to entered Haryana through Khanauri, along with party workers, said that the unprecedented unity of the farmers of Punjab and other parts of the country, would bring the Narendra Modi government at the Center on its knees.
They said that the anti-farmer designs employed by Capt. Amarinder Singh, who was dancing to the tunes of PM Narendra Modi, against the interests of the farmers would be thwarted.
Principal Budh Ram, MLA, participating in the farmers’ protest, said from Sonipat (Haryana) that the Modi government was going the whole hog to crush the agitation by inflicting tortures on the farmers instead of acceding to their genuine demands.
Earlier, eight Aam Aadmi Party MLAs from Punjab, including Harpal Singh Cheema, Leader of Opposition in Punjab Vidhan Sabha, Aman Arora, Youth Wing President and Gurmeet Singh Meet Hayer, state Kisan Wing President Kultar Singh Sandhwan, Prof. Baljinder Kaur, Jai Krishan Singh Rouri, Manjit Singh Bilaspur, Kulwant Pandori and Jarnail Singh in-charge of Punjab (All MLAs) staged a protest in front of the Prime Minister’s official residence against the three draconian farm laws, who were later taken into custody by Delhi Police.
The protesting AAP MLAs said they would not be intimidated by the atrocities being perpetrated by the government on them to gag their dissenting voices, in favour of the struggling farmers.
