NDA with corporates, not farmers: Congress

Chandigarh/Fazilka, Dec 8

Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) president Sunil Jakhar on Tuesday said the virus of arrogance among those in power was a major threat to democracy in the country.

Addressing the district-level dharnas organised by the Congress at Landran to protest the farm laws, he said the Central Government was not ready to listen to thepeople, which was dangerous for the democracy.

Jakhar said the very foundation of democracy was a government elected by people, which was sensitive to their demands and expectations. He alleged that the BJP government at the Centre was securing the interests of corporates rather than paying heed to people’s demands.

Asserting that authoritarianism had no place in democracy, the PPCC president said though the Prime Minister was repeatedly saying that the new laws would abolish middleman in agriculture but the Central Government was itself acting as intermediary of big corporates for implementing these laws.

Meanwhile in Fazilka, Gidderbaha MLA Amarinder Singh Raja Warring andseveral other Congress leaders gheroaed the residence of BJP’s former Health Minister Surjit Kumar Jyani at his native Katehra village on Tuesday.

A complete bandh was observed in Fazilka town by the traders to express their solidarity with the striking farmers. — TNS
