Chandigarh, January 25

Terming their Republic Day tractor rally a testimony to the celebration of the Indian Republic and its Constitutional ethos, Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Monday appealed to the farmers to ensure that the event remained peaceful just as their anti-farm law protests have been so far. He urged the Centre once again to heed the troubled voice of the farming community.


Capt Amarinder Singh, Chief Minister

We stand by you

We stand by every farmer of the state. Besides compensation and job for one family member of each of the deceased farmers, we shall extend any other help their families may need. We shall also continue to reach out to the families of those still camping at the Delhi borders


"Peace has been the hallmark of your (farmers') democratic protests all these months, and should remain integral to your agitation in the days ahead, including the R-Day tractor rally into the national capital," he said in his message on Republic Day eve.

Lamenting that the federal structure was facing one of its biggest threats, the CM said the manner in which the three farm laws were pushed through, without debate or discussion, cannot, and should not be accepted in the world's largest democracy. The Centre had no power to legislate on a state subject, which agriculture is, and the implementation of the farm laws violated every principle of our Constitution and the federal structure, he added. The CM said farmers' collective fight, in which his government was standing shoulder to shoulder with them, was aimed at protecting the federal core of the Constitution.
