Jind: Former Chief Minister and Leader of Opposition Bhupinder Singh Hooda has supported the Bharat Bandh called on December 8 and appealed to the public that protests should be peaceful and disciplined like the farmers movement. Hooda said the entire country and all organizations stand with the farmers.
The former Chief Minister said the demands of the farmers are completely valid and the government should accept all their demands, without any further delay. He reiterated that Minimum Support Price of crops is the right of every farmer and it is the responsibility of every government to ensure the farmers get MSP for their crops.

Addressing the Press conference in Jind, the Leader of Opposition said he had written a letter to the Governor demanding to call an emergency session of the Assembly. “The Congress will bring a no-confidence motion in the House as this government has clearly lost the trust of the public and the legislators. There is an atmosphere of political instability and mistrust of the government in the state. In these exceptional circumstances, the Hon’ble Governor should call a special session while discharging his constitutional responsibilities,” he stated.
Hooda said the ‘Annadata’ of the state is staging a peaceful dharna on the Delhi border with their demands for several days now but even today, JJP and independent MLAs are clinging to the power, instead of standing with the farmers. “They are talking about the support to the farmers, but are also continuing their support to the government. This No-Confidence Motion will expose legislators who are playing a ‘double-role’. Now, the legislators have to choose between the government and the farmer,” he added
The Leader of Opposition advised the government that it would have to give up its non-commital attitude as the movement would escalate the more the government delays accepting the demand of farmers. “This movement is not limited to Haryana and Punjab only. Farmers from all states including UP, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh are joining the movement. A large number of peasants are staging a peaceful sit-in at the Delhi border but an even larger number of farmers are protesting against three new agricultural laws in their respective areas,” he stated.
Hooda said they had opposed the new agricultural laws from the house to the streets and have demanded to add provision that would guarantee MSP to farmer. If the government had accepted our demands on time, the farmers’ unrest would not have blown into a national movement, he said.
“The government perhaps felt that they would suppress the agitation using force and the police but the farmers upset their plans with their peaceful protests. There is still time, the government should improve its approach and not go in for delaying tactics and they should make laws to guarantee MSP to the farmers,” Hooda remarked.
