Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Saturday said he will not speak to his Haryana counterpart Manohar Lal Khattar until the latter apologises for his brutality against Punjab’s farmers.
Singh said that the Haryana CM was speaking lies and he did not receive any call or message from him.
“He never called me, @mlkhattaris lying, says @capt_amarinder but vows not to talk to Haryana CM now unless he apologises for brutality against Punjab’s farmers. Will not forgive him for what he has done to my farmers, will not talk to him till he says sorry,” Raveen Thukral, Media Advisor to CM tweeted.
“I’m a nationalist to the core. I run a border state. I’ll never allow anything or anyone to disturb law & order in Punjab. I only want peace and will do anything for it,” says @capt amarinder, slamming @mlkhattar’s `lies,” Thukral said.
Earlier in the day, Khattar thanked the farmers of Haryana for not participating in the demonstration against the farm laws.
Reacting to Khattar’s comments. Amarinder said, Punjab intel showed 40000-50000 Haryana farmers joined farmers’ Dilli Chalo. “Haryana CM didn’t know what’s happening in his own state & has no business poking his nose in Punjab’s affairs,” he added.
On Wednesday, thousands of farmers from several states began marching to the national capital against Centre’s farm laws.
