Truth must come out regarding Shubhkaran's death: Punjab BJP chief

Truth must come out regarding Shubhkaran's death: Punjab BJP chief

Chandigarh, Feb 23 (UNI) Punjab BJP president Sunil Jakhar on Friday demanded strict action against those responsible for the death of Shubhkaran Singh during the ongoing farmers' protest and said the truth must come out while calling for measures to prevent recurrence of such mishap.
Shubhkaran Singh, a 21-year-old farmer, died on Wednesday at the Khanauri border between Punjab and Haryana allegedly after a clash between security forces and the protesting farmers. The protesting farmers' unions and some anti-BJP political parties have claimed he was killed in police firing.
Taking to his X handle, Jakhar said resolution of all demands made by the protesting farmers has to come through talks and both sides must work towards resolving issues through dialogue.
"There are thousands of our Shubhkarans at protest site even today. Both sides must remember Every life matters," Jakhar said on his X handle.
"Tragic death of young Shubhkaran Singh is very painful. My deepest sympathies are with his family and the whole of Punjab today stands with them. A thorough investigation must lead to who is responsible for his death and truth must come out," he said.
He said while governments and security forces must observe restraint and sensitivity to allow peaceful protests, farmer organisations must also channelise the passions and energy of youngsters in the right direction.
"Leaders of this agitation must realise that our youngsters are assets to our nation and they must ensure that youth is not misused for someone's narrow political motives," he said. UNI GS SY SSP
