BKU shows black flags to Dy CM over farm laws

Tribune News Service

Kurukshetra, October 28

Deputy Chief Minister Dushyant Chautala on Wednesday said the state government had so far released Rs 3,300 crore to paddy farmers and efforts were being made to ensure that farmers and traders faced no inconvenience during the ongoing paddy procurement season.

"The government has always taken decisions in the interest of farmers and traders. The three new farm laws should be seen in this context," he told the media in the district's Thaska Miranji village on Wednesday.

He claimed farmers in the state would continue to get the MSP for their produce.

To a query on the murder of a 21-year-old girl outside a Faridabad college on Monday, Dushyant said: "The culprits will not be spared. The state government has formed an SIT to probe the matter."

Meanwhile, Bharatiya Kisan Union (Charuni) activists raised slogans against the state government for not opposing the three farm laws and showed black flags to the Deputy Chief Minister when his convoy passed from the Ambala-Hisar highway in Ismailabad.

A group of farmers had gathered along the road after they learnt about Dushyant Chautala's Kurukshetra visit.

Rakesh Bains, BKU (Charuni) spokesman, said: "The BKU will continue to protest till the three farm laws are not withdrawn."
