Will block cops if farmers are booked: SAD

Chandigarh, October 15

The SAD today threatened to gherao DGP Dinkar Gupta as well as the police force if a false case was registered against any farmer in connection with the attack on BJP state president Ashwani Sharma.

Addressing a press conference here, senior SAD leaders Bikram Singh Majithia and Dr Daljit Singh Cheema said the SAD would stand with farmers who were conducting a peaceful agitation against the 'draconian' agri-marketing laws and condemned attempts to defame farmers and their cause.

They said it was shocking that both Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh and DGP Dinkar Gupta had come out with identical statements saying 25 farmer organisations were linked to the attack two days after a case was registered against unidentified persons in the matter.

They said Sharma had stated he was attacked by Congress workers. "Even the Congress MP from Ludhiana, Ravneet Singh Bittu, has confessed that party men were behind the attack. Why isn't the state government taking action against Bittu?" they said. — TNS
