‘Kisan Kesari Samman’ for Abhay

Tribune News Service

Hisar, February 5

A ‘kisan mahapanchayat’ today honoured INLD leader Abhay Chautala, who has resigned from the Assembly in support of the farmers’ protest, with the “Kisan Kesari Samman”.

“For me, there is no post bigger than the farmers’ cause. I will be back in the Assembly with people’s blessings in the byelections,” Abhay said while addressing farmers at Nathusari Chopta in Sirsa.

He further said, “Prime Minister Narendra Modi had assured farmers of waiving their loans and implementing the Swaminathan Commission recommendations. But under pressure from the corporate sector, the Centre took an about-turn. It took steps which will leave farmers at the mercy of corporate houses.”

The former Ellenabad MLA hit out at leaders, who claimed to follow in the footsteps of late Deputy Prime Minister Chaudhary Devi Lal. “They have shut themselves in their homes, fearing backlash of farmers.”

Abhay urged farmers to participate in tomorrow’s “chakka jam” announced by the Sanyukt Kisan Morcha.
