Farm union leaders stand divided with regard to the alleged breach in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s security on Wednesday.
The BKU (Lakhowal) and Kul Hind Kisan Sabha have condemned the alleged blockade by farmers near Piareana village on Ferozepur-Moga road. However, the Punjab Kisan Union and BKU (Sidhupur) have supported the protesters.
BKU (Dakaunda) president Buta Singh said there was no collective call given by the SKM for a protest or bloackade of the road on which the PM’s cavalcade was passing through. BKU (Ekta Ugrahan) leaders, without justifying or speaking against the blockade or security breach, have said it was a “planned move” with political motives. Few farm union leaders have even termed it a “big loss” to the state as projects worth Rs 42,750 crores were to be inaugurated by the PM.
Baldev Singh Sandoha, general secretary of BKU (Ekta Sidhupur) said: “Farmers protested against the PM’s visit which is their democratic right.”
Blocking the road on which the PM’s convoy was to pass through was wrong. — Harinder Singh Lakhowal, BKU (Lakhowal)
