Takht: Bid to malign peaceful movement

Amritsar, December 9

Akal Takht has taken cognisance of the Centre's "stubborn" attitude towards resolving the impasse with the farmers over the farm laws and has demanded that the newly enacted farm laws should be repealed.

During a press conference, officiating Jathedar Giani Harpreet Singh said that attempts were being made to malign the farmers' peaceful protest by tagging them as "Khalistanis".

He said that the government was for the people and laws were to be formulated for people's benefit. If the people were not ready to accept those, those should be repealed unconditionally.

"The farmers' agitation is being defamed as if it was anti-national. A major portion of the media has become a puppet of the Centre and is tagging farmers as 'Khalistanis' to divert attention from the farmers' cause," he said. — TNS
