Panchkula, December 20

The anger of farmers against the three recently-enacted farm laws may hurt the BJP's prospects in villages, which make for a considerable share of the electorate, as is apparent from the fact that residents in Saketri village (ward number 1) have come up with anti-BJP posters.

Households directly or indirectly associated with the farming sector have put 'boycott BJP' posters outside their houses, not allowing the BJP cadre to come inside their houses for seeking votes for the Panchkula MC elections.

A poster written in 'Gurmukhi' says: "Asi kisaan aa, atankwadi nahi (we are farmers, not terrorists)."

"We won't allow the leaders of the BJP to enter our houses to seek votes until the Modi government repeals the farm laws. How dare they call us terrorists?" said Kulwant Singh, a resident.

Isn't the BJP ashamed of seeking votes from farmers despite harassing them? The village has its own Independent candidate in the fray. The man contesting from the village is a farmer himself. He can relate to our concerns. Hence, we will vote for him. —Harjinder Singh, A villager

Villager Harjinder Singh, who shares similar views, said: "Isn't the BJP ashamed of seeking votes from farmers despite harassing them?" He said the village had own Independent candidate in the fray. "The man contesting from the village is a farmer himself. He can relate to our concerns. Hence, we will vote for him," Singh said.

At least 4 candidates — Kuljit Kaur (Congress), Narinder Pal Singh Lubana (BJP), Anil Kumar (Independent), Sukhdev Singh (Independent) and Sukhvinder Kaur (Independent) — are in the fray from ward number 1.
