Former CM and Leader of Opposition Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Wednesday said action must be taken against those who ordered the lathicharge on farmers.

He said: “The barbaric crackdown on farmers in Karnal, was illegal, undemocratic and inhuman.” Meanwhile, he termed 2% hike in the MSP of rabi crops — wheat, barley and gram — as grossly insufficient and a cruel joke with the farmers. Hooda said there had been a huge increase in the input costs of the farm produce as petrol and diesel prices had skyrocketed.
