Panipat, September 13

The Samyukt Kisan Morcha leaders flayed the Punjab Chief Minister’s remark.

While Harpal Singh Sangha, president of the Azad Kisan Sangharsh Committee, Doaba, claimed Captain was afraid that the farm stir could damage his party’s prospects in the upcoming Assembly elections, Kulwinder Singh Sandhu, who heads the Jamhoori Kisan Sabha pointed out: “We have not paralysed the functioning of any Punjab Government office. Adani and Jio establishments are surely not part of the government.”
