Capt, Khattar spar on Twitter

Chandigarh, November 26

Punjab CM Capt Amarinder Singh and his Haryana counterpart Manohar Lal Khattar clashed over farmers' unrest on Twitter on Thursday.

In the afternoon, Amarinder tweeted, "For nearly two months, farmers have been protesting peacefully in Punjab without any problem. Why is Haryana government provoking them by resorting to force? Don't the farmers have the right to pass peacefully through a public highway?"

"It's a sad irony that on #ConstitutionDay2020 the constitutional right of farmers is being oppressed in this manner. Let them pass @mlkhattar ji, don't push them to the brink. Let them take their voice to Delhi peacefully," he tweeted.

After more than two hours, Khattar reacted. In a series of tweets from his personal handle, the Haryana CM told Amarinder to stop inciting farmers. He tweeted, "@capt_amarinder ji, I've said it earlier and I'm saying it again, I'll leave politics if there'll be any trouble on the MSP-therefore please stop inciting innocent farmers."

"I've been trying to reach out to you for the last three days but sadly you decided to stay unreachable. Is this how serious you are for farmers' issues?" he tweeted.

In the evening, Amarinder responded, "Shocked at your response @mlkhattar ji. It's the farmers who've to be convinced on MSP, not me. You should've tried to talk to them before their #DilliChalo. And if you think I'm inciting farmers, then why are Haryana farmers also marching to Delhi?"
