Former Union Cabinet Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal on Monday criticised the Government for creating hurdles in the tractor march planned by the protesting farmers on January 26.
Harsimrat said after water cannons, tear gas and NIA cases, now the fuel stations in Uttar Pradesh ordered not to supply diesel to farmers for tractor parade.
“Such oppression would only make farmers more resolute about the agitation,” she said.
“After water cannons, tear gas, lathis & #NIA cases, now fuel stations in UP ordered not to supply diesel to farmers going for Jan 26 #TractorMarch. How many hurdles will BJP-led govt put in the way of farmers? Such oppression only makes farmers more resolute about the agitation,” Harsimrat tweeted.
On September 17, Harsimrat Kaur Badal resigned from the Modi government in protest against the farm bills.
Informing about her decision, Harsimrat in a tweet said, “I have resigned from Union Cabinet in protest against anti-farmer ordinances and legislation. Proud to stand with farmers as their daughter & sister.”
Several farmers have been protesting since November 26 at various border points of Delhi against the Centre’s farm laws.
