SHAMBHU: Farmers from Punjab have successfully entered Haryana after breaking heavy barricading at the Haryana-Punjab border in Shambhu today.
Though police tried its best to stop the cavalcade of protesters, but it failed in its attempt even after it used water cannons and tear gas shells to stop farmers.
Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Thursday attacked Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) saying, instead of listening to the voices of the farmers the BJP government is using water cannons to disperse them in cold weather.
“Instead of listening to the voice of the farmers who are protesting against the laws, that snatched the support price from them, the BJP government uses water cannon to disperse them in cold weather. Everything is being taken away from the farmers while the capitalists are being given banks, airport, railway stations and loan waiver,” the Congress leader tweeted (roughly translated from Hindi).
किसानों से समर्थन मूल्य छीनने वाले कानून के विरोध में किसान की आवाज सुनने की बजाय भाजपा सरकार उन पर भारी ठंड में पानी की बौछार मारती है। किसानों से सबकुछ छीना जा रहा है और पूंजीपतियों को थाल में सजा कर बैंक, कर्जमाफी, एयरपोर्ट रेलवे स्टेशन बांटे जा रहे हैं। #FarmersProtest pic.twitter.com/al8dG8ZZhi— Priyanka Gandhi Vadra (@priyankagandhi) November 26, 2020
