HKU seeks probe into Red Fort violence by independent agency

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, February 20

The Haryana Kisan Union (HKU) on Saturday demanded a probe by an independent agency into the Red Fort violence on January 26 and the release of innocent farmers arrested in this connection without any delay.

Addressing the media, union president Randhir Singh Redhu, economist Raghbir Chand Goyal and Baljit Singh Igarah alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had never participated in any non-violent democratic movement till date, so he did not understand the mindset of the agrarian society.

He said it was totally unacceptable to describe peacefully protesting farmers as traitors and Khalistanis.

Redhu demanded immediate withdrawal of the three agricultural laws, release of the arrested farmers and compensation to those who died during the agitation.

Describing Haryana Agriculture Minister JP Dalal’s remark on the deaths of farmers as irresponsible and insensitive, Redhu said he should be dismissed without any delay.
