AAP flays Centre's attitude to protesting farmers

Chandigarh, Nov 28 (UNI) The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Punjab on Saturday hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Central Government, alleging the Centre attempted to crush the farmers' ongoing stir against the new farm laws, by resorting to repressive measures. Taking a serious note of the repressive measures being resorted to by the government, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has demanded it should take an urgent call on the farmers' genuine and allow them to demonstrate at the spot of their choice.
In a statement, state president and Sangrur Lok Sabha member Bhagwant Mann said, "In a democratic system of governance, every law abiding citizen of the country enjoys a legitimate right to register his protest through peaceful means. It is a matter of grave concern that the Modi government has adopted oppressive means to deprive the farmers of their legitimate right to protest at a place of their choice. The move clearly indicates that the government was in hurry to resolve the issues and concerns of the farmers, adding that it was a blatant violation of the rights of the people enshrined in the Indian Constitution".
Bhagwant Mann said that the Modi government at the Centre should go into a huddle and thrash out an amicable solution to the farmers' issues, adding it should resolve them ahead of the scheduled meeting on December 3, keeping in view of the seriousness of the issues. He lamented that the Modi government should offer a helping hand to the country's 'annaadaata', who was bearing the brunt of the stubborn stance of the Modi government, bearing the brunt of the freezing winter nights on Delhi roads.
