New Delhi: Farmers in Punjab are stuck at Delhi’s Singhu border in protest of agricultural laws. Meanwhile, there was a huge uproar in the Delhi Assembly on Thursday over the farm law. Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs, including Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, tore up a copy of the farmers’ law during a special session.
CM Arvind Kejriwal lashed out at the BJP, saying, “Agricultural laws were brought to fund the BJP’s elections.” He said the BJP is confused, not the farmer. More than 20 farmers have been martyred in this agitation. Every day a farmer is being martyred. I want to ask the central government, how much more martyrdom and how much do you know?
