Don’t hold stir in Punjab: Capt to farmers | India News – Times of India


Punjab chief minister Amarinder Singh appealed on Monday to the representatives of various farmer unions to not hold protests against the three central farm laws in the state and, instead, to protest in Delhi or Haryana along with farmers from other states, reports IP Singh.
He also reminded them that the Punjab government has always supported them and their agitation. “Farmers are trying to stop people. Punjab is one state which has supported farmers and their movement,” Amarinder said.
“It’s your own Punjab, please don’t spoil things here. Let those protesting in Delhi and Haryana keep doing that. You do there, why should you protest in Punjab? Punjab needs development and I expect that they would agree with me and would not allow anything wrong here,” Amarinder said, adding, “In Punjab farmers are sitting at 113 places. It’s actually causing a loss to Punjab. Why should the economy of Punjab be damaged?”
