Chandigarh: Haryana Congress will organise peace march in every block of the state from February 3 to 5 in support of farmers protesting against the Centre’s agricultur laws, state Congress chief Kumari Selja on Saturday.
“Haryana Congress will organise peace march in every block of the state from February 3 to 5 in support of farmers protesting against the Central agri laws and also for promoting brotherhood and harmony,” Selja told reporters.
“BJP government was crossing all limits of shamelessness. All tactics were being adopted by the party to declare the farmers as traitors,” she alleged.
The state party chief asked “what type of patriotism is the BJP exhibiting? It should remember that the families of these farmers have sacrificed their lives for the country. Members of their family are on the borders.” “BJP members are attacking farmers who are peacefully agitating at the sites, where the police remained a mute spectator. Farmers are being threatened and intimidated by the police at the behest of the BJP. False cases are being filed against them,” she added.
Condemning the Haryana government’s decision to stop mobile internet services in the state, Congress General Secretary Randeep Singh Surjewala yesterday demanded ‘immediate’ resumption of services.
The Haryana government on Friday suspended all mobile internet, SMS, and dongle services in 17 districts including Sonipat, Palwal, and Jhajjar till 5 pm on January 30. The voice calls, however, are exempted as earlier from the suspension.
Farmers from Punjab, Haryana and western Uttar Pradesh have been camping at Delhi borders for several weeks, demanding the repeal of the farm laws and a legal guarantee on the minimum support price for crops.
