Karnal, January 12
Leader of Opposition Bhupinder Singh Hooda today reiterated that it was the BJP, and not the Congress, which was inciting farmers and suggested to the ruling party to repeal the forcibly introduced laws to avoid any confrontation.
His statement came in response to Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar’s statement that the Congress had provoked farmers to ransack the venue of his event in the district’s Kaimla village on January 10.
Hooda was in the city to visit Congress leader Jeet Ram Kashyap and express condolences on his wife’s death.
“The state government should have not organised ‘kisan mahapanchayat’ when the Centre was in talks with farmers’ leaders. The BJP is to be blamed for provoking farmers in Kaimla village,” said the former Chief Minister.
Hooda accused Khattar and local MLA Harvinder Kalyan for what happened in Kaimla village. — TNS
