Chandigarh: Former Chief Minister and Leader of Opposition Bhupinder Singh Hooda visited Ujhana village of Jind on Sunday to pay his tributes to Kisan Kitab Singh and offered condolences to the bereaved family. Kitab Singh was killed on a dharna near the village during Bharat Bandh in protest against agricultural laws.
Three Haryana farmers, from Jind, Sonipat and Hisar districts, have lost their lives during this movement while a total of a dozen farmers from both states have lost their lives so far. Hooda said he, the people of Haryana and farmers from across the country stood with the family in the hour of grief.
Speaking to reporters on this occasion, Hooda demanded the state government give proper financial help and a government job to the families of all the farmers who lost their lives during the agitation.
“It has been almost three weeks since the farmers left their homes and have been struggling for their legitimate demands, but the government continues to be in denial, pretending as if these protests don’t exist. Government should not be so unrelenting. He should consider the demands of the farmers with the sensitivity and sincerity they deserve,” Hooda said.
He said the government’s neglect of farmers is proving to be fatal as farmers are losing their lives at the site of the farmer’s agitation on the Delhi border, but the government is indifferent to the plight of farmers who are spending cold winter nights under the open sky. “The farmers’ agitation is completely peaceful, and their demands are completely justified and every Indian stands with the farmers. The guarantee of MSP is the right of the farmers and the government should accept their demands and withdraw all three agricultural laws,” Hooda added.
