Never stopped statements of alleged farmers, leaders: CM Khattar

Chandigarh, Jan 08 (ANI): Farmers in and around Delhi are protesting from last 46 days against the farm laws. Ahead of Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar’s Kisan Mahapanchayat in Karnal, farmers held a protest at the venue. In order to control the protestors, police used teargas at them but all failed. Speaking to media in a press conference in Chandigarh on January 10, Haryana Chief Minister, Manohar Lal Khattar spoke on protest at his scheduled Kisan Mahapanchayat. Khattar said, “Our nation has a strong democracy where everyone has freedom of expression. We never stopped statements of these alleged farmers and leaders.” “Their agitation is going on. Despite COVID-19 pandemic, we made arrangements for them,” CM added. “It's not right to obstruct anyone who wants to speak. I don't think people will tolerate violation of provisions given by Dr BR Ambedkar. Congress had attempted to finish democracy in 1975. At that time people identified their disgusting work and threw them out of power,” Khattar further stated.
