The SKM alleged that the Haryana Government has filed cases against more than 2,500 persons at various police stations of Ambala, Yamunanagar, Kurukshetra, Karnal, Jhajjar, Sirsa, Sonepat, Kaithal and other locations.

The SKM said that more than 12 cases have been registered against 120 named farmers and 300 unidentified others in Karnal; six cases have been filed against 700 unidentified persons and 91 named farmers over the Bastara toll plaza incident in Karnal; more than 100 protesters have been implicated in different police stations in Sirsa; around 400 persons have been booked in FIRs filed at Rai of Sonepat; cases have been filed against more than 150 persons in Bahadurgarh; cases have been slapped against 450 farmers in Ambala and in Panchkula, on around 260. This is a shameful act by the Haryana Government against farmers of the state.

The state government should stop waging war against its own citizens and immediately and unconditionally withdraw all cases. —Samyukt Kisan Morcha

The SKM claimed that the Chief Minister has said that violence would not be allowed in the name of protest whereas it is clear that the government is ready to be brutally violent in the name of law and order against the farmers.

The SKM asked the state BJP-JJP government to stop waging this war against its own citizens and demanded immediate and unconditional withdrawal of all cases.

The SKM said that All-India Lawyers’ Union (AILU) has announced to organise a protest tomorrow and the AILU would take out a protest march from the Supreme Court to Haryana Bhawan against the police attack on farmers in Karnal.
