Dialogue only way out: Khattar to farmers

Tribune News Service

Karnal, February 6

Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Saturday urged the protesting farmers to come forward for dialogue as it is the only way to resolve any stalemate.

"Prime Minister Narendra Modi has already made it clear that he is a phone call away from farmers. They should come forward to join the dialogue to resolve the issue," said Khattar, while talking to the media at community centre, Sector-6, after the opening of lawn tennis, badminton court and walking path facility centre.

The Chief Minister said such centres would be opened in other areas of the city as per the requirement.

Khattar visited the district after a long gap. Earlier, he had to cancel his programme at Kaimla village last month due to the ongoing agitation.

The Chief Minister also held a meeting with officials at PWD Rest House and reviewed development works. He said the "chakka jam" by farmers remained peaceful and no untoward incident was reported in the state. "I appreciate the efforts of the authorities and also thank the protestors for a peaceful stir," said Khattar.

To a query, he denied any shortage of budget for development works in the district. He said the government would provide funds if required. Khattar said he would take up the issue of dilapidated roads with the officials concerned.
