Chandigarh, October 16
Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) chief Sunil Jakhar today said there was a larger political design behind BJP leaders’ confrontation with protesting farmers.
Referring to former Union Minister Vijay Sampla staging a protest yesterday after being stopped by farmers, Jakhar said it was done to undermine the struggle of farmers.
“Any sensible man can understand as to why the BJP ministers were not sitting across the table with farmers to listen to them and give their point of view. Instead, they are trying to have a face-off with farmers to give a different colour to the issue,” he said.
“Despite the police telling Sampla to take an alternative route, he insisted on taking the route on which the farmers were protesting knowing well they would register their protest on seeing a BJP leader. He was looking for a confrontation with farmers,” Jakhar said. — TNS
