Compensate kin of farmers who died during stir: Kumari Selja

Tribune News Service

New Delhi, December 30

State Congress president Kumari Selja on Wednesday demanded compensation for the families of farmers who had died during the ongoing stir against the three farm laws.

Addressing the press at AICC headquarters here, Selja said the Centre should repeal the farm laws and give a New Year gift to the protesters.

"Ten farmers from Haryana have died during the ongoing stir in Delhi. The Centre must compensate this loss of life and give jobs to the next of kin of those who died. These issues should ideally have been flagged to the Prime Minister by Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar," Selja said.

"People have lost faith in both the BJP-ruled Centre and the state. The Centre is far removed from the ground realities bothering farmers," she said. Uttarakhand Congress chief Pritam Singh was present.
