BKU: Scrap laws or face WB-like defeat

Ludhiana, May 3

Expressing satisfaction on the results of Assembly elections in West Bengal, the Bhartiya Kisan Union (BKU) (Lakhowal) has sounded a note of warning to the Centre to accept the demands of agitating farmers lest the saffron party should suffer more such humiliating defeats in elections to be held in the future.

BKU general secretary Harinder Singh Lakhowal said senior BJP leaders had gone all out to hand over lands of farmers to big business houses through the anti-farmer laws.

The BKU leader said there have been 11 rounds of talks between the farm leaders and government functionaries during the course of the farmers’ stir without any conclusion simply because of the negative attitude of the BJP leadership.

He said PM Modi, his senior Cabinet colleagues and the BJP leadership ought to read the writing on the wall after being rejected by the West Bengal electorate.
