Cong seeks special Assembly session

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, January 10

With agitating farmers forcing the cancellation of the Chief Minister’s ‘kisan mahapanchayat’ at Kaimla village in Karnal today, the Congress demanded a special session of the Assembly asking the BJP-JJP government to seek a trust vote.

Haryana Pradesh Congress Committee (HPCC) president Kumari Selja said that the government had lost the trust of the people.

“The protest against Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar’s event at Kaimla village is another example of the government’s unpopularity. A special session of the Assembly should be convened immediately,” said the HPCC chief.

Kumari Selja alleged that the ‘kisan mahapanchayat’ was planned to mislead the people of the state over the three farm laws.

She once again appealed to the MLAs to listen to their conscience and leave this “anti-people” government, else the people of the state would never forgive them.

Former Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda said the state government should avoid any type of confrontation with farmers at a time when they were agitating against the farm laws at Delhi borders for the past 46 days.

On a clash between the police and farmers in Karnal district, Hooda said the government should not do anything that led to confrontation.

AICC general secretary Randeep Surejewala termed the ‘kisan mahapanchayat’ a “sarkari” event. “Instead of talking to state-sponsored farmers, the government should engage in a dialogue with those sitting at the Delhi borders,” he added.
