Haryana-Chief-Minister-Manohar-Lal-Khattar

Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Thursday slammed his Punjab counterpart, Amarinder Singh, for inciting the farmers.

In a series of tweets, he asked Amarinder Singh to “stop inciting farmers”.

“Amarinder-ji, I’ve said it earlier and I’m saying it again, I’ll leave politics if there’ll be any trouble on the MSP – therefore, please stop inciting innocent farmers,” Khattar said.

Khattar asked him to avoid cheap politics.

“I’ve been trying to reach out to you for the last three days but sadly you decided to stay unreachable. Is this how serious you are for farmer’s issues? You’re only tweeting and running away from talks, Why?” he wrote.

Khattar added: “Time for your Lies, Deception and Propaganda is over — let the people see your real face. Please stop putting the lives of people in danger during the Corona pandemic.

“I urge you to not play with the lives of the people -at least avoid cheap politics during the time of pandemic.”

Earlier, Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh urged the BJP-led central leadership to direct saffron states’ administrations not to indulge in strong-arm tactics against the “angry” agriculture community.

“It’s a sad irony that on Constitution Day 2020, the constitutional right of farmers is being oppressed in this manner. Let them pass (Haryana Chief Minister) Manohar Lal Khattar, don’t push them to the brink. Let them take their voice to Delhi peacefully,” a tweet quoting the Chief Minister said.

The series of tweet from Punjab Chief Minister’s Media Adviser Raveen Thukral’s handle came when tens of thousands of farmers, despite braving tear-gas shells and water cannons from Haryana Police, managed to broke police barricades ahead of the Punjab-Haryana border in Shambhu near Ambala with several of them, both protesters and the policemen were injured.

The farmers broke barricades threw them down the bridge.

According to the All India Kisan Sabha, there are over 50,000 farmers at the spot.

Bracing overnight rains and chilly winds, thousands of protesting farmers assembled at various places along the Haryana borders in Punjab amid mounting tension.

They have been stopped by the Haryana Police while heading towards the national capital for their ‘Delhi Chalo’ protest against the three Central farm laws.

A huge contingent of police comprising the Rapid Action Force has been deployed to deal with any untoward situation. They tried to evict farmers gathered since Wednesday evening.

Kerala-Chief-Minister-Pinarayi-Vijayan

Joining issue in the ongoing war of words between chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan and new Congress president K. Sudhakaran, on Saturday, Union Minister of State for External Affairs V. Muraleedharan demanded that an attempt to murder case against Vijayan be lodged.

On Saturday, at Sudhakaran’s press conference, his party colleague K. Gopi, who hails from Vijayan’s village in Kannur, recalled an old incident, that in 1977 when 26 beedi workers were terminated from a society, they led a protest.

“I was leading the protest and then Vijayan with a sword led a group of people and he brandished his sword and it hit my hand and the injury mark is still there,” said Gopi showing his hand and adding that despite his complaint to the local police then, there was no further action in the case.

Muraleedharan told the media in the state capital that if the Congress party is serious in the allegation, they should register a police complaint.

“There is no time limit to an attempt to murder case and hence, Sudhakaran should ask Gopi to go forward and register a fresh complaint,” said Muraleedharan.

He also pointed out that in the past two days both these leaders have been revisiting their college days at the Government Brennen College and have been saying about their deeds then and it shows that both of them were goons and criminals.

“My appeal to both of them is not to portray a great institution like Brennen College by distorting its greatness, and lowering it as a place of goons,” said Muraleedharan.
