Haryana govt let Centre down, says Birender

Birender Singh

New Delhi, January 12

Senior BJP leader and former Union minister Birender Singh today said the party’s government in Haryana and its leadership in Punjab did not handle the issue properly and let the Central brass down.

He said the intent of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Central Government behind the farm laws was the overall welfare of farmers.

“The intent of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Central Government behind these three farm laws was to improve the quality of life of farmers and their overall welfare,” he said.

Sounding critical of his party’s government in Haryana and its leadership in Punjab, Birender said the issue would have been resolved much earlier had they addressed farmers’ apprehensions effectively in initial days of the protest.

“The BJP government in Haryana and its leadership in Punjab let the party down by not addressing the farmers’ apprehensions effectively when these were yet to be passed by Parliament and the protest was just beginning,” he said.

Hoping for an early resolution of the issue, he said, “If the issue is not resolved early, it could have serious repercussions for the BJP-JJP government in Haryana in the long run.” — PTI
