Chandigarh, October 26, 2020 (Yes Punjab News)
Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Punjab President and Member of Parliament Bhagwant Mann has strongly condemned the Union Government for stalling goods trains to Punjab, saying the Prime Minister Narendra Modi had adopted a revengeful attitude towards Punjab with an on derailing the peasants’ struggle.
In a statement issued from party headquarters here on Monday, Bhagwant Mann that the dictatorial and arbitrary decision to stop goods trains to Punjab with a rider regarding passengers trains imposed on the farmers was a clever ploy of the Centre hatched under a deep-rooted conspiracy to sabotage the farmers struggle against the deadly black laws, adding that it would not be tolerated at any cost.
Mann said PM Modi should shun his arrogant and dictatorial attitude towards the hassled farmers and hold their hand in this hour of crisis and reverse the draconian farm laws being imposed on them by brute force.
The AAP MP accused the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi of running away from holding talks with the farmers as he (Modi) was more interested to protect the patronised corporate houses, like the Ambanis-Adanis. Mann said that the Modi government was peddling all lies about the farmers over the issue of blocking of goods trains under a deep conspiracy hatched by the government to bulldoze the farmers’ struggle.
Bhagwant Mann said that, instead of holding talks with the farmers to address their concerns, the BJP leaders were indulging in mouthing inanities, calling them ‘brokers’ and using other derogatory epithets against the ‘annadata’.
Mann questioned the Modi government “If the central farm laws are in favour of the farming fraternity, then why are middlemen buying paddy from helpless farmers in UP-Bihar at half price and selling it in the Punjab mandis at exorbitant price”.
Mann had a piece of precious advice for chief minister Capt. Amarinder Singh, saying, that instead of making appeals to the farmers to call off their stir citing urea, coal, electricity and trade, he should broach the issue of farmers with the prime minister.
