Farmer leader Balbir Singh Rajewal on Wednesday termed actor-turned-activist Deep Sidhu and Mazdoor Kisan Sangharsh Committee leaders Satnam Singh Pannu and Sarwan Singh Pandher as Punjab’s “biggest traitors” and gave a call for their boycott in the state.
Putting up a show of strength at Singhu, the farmer leaders alleged that it was the BJP-led central government’s conspiracy to allow the protesters to march towards the Red Fort. Rajewal gave a call to “throw out the filth out of the farmers’ movement” a day after the violence at the Red Fort.
Questioning the role of the Delhi Police, he alleged the protesters heading to the Red Fort were escorted by cops but those marching on the route agreed upon were stopped by raising the barricades.
Farmer leader Rajinder Singh Deep Singhwala said Khalistani Gurpatwant Singh Pannu had announced a reward of $2.5 lakh for hoisting the “flag of Khalistan” on the Red Fort. Now Lakha Sidhana, Deep Sidhu, Students for Society and Democratic Students Organisation in Punjabi University must tell how much share all of them got from that. The slogans of ‘Deep Sidhu and Lakha Sidhana murdabad’ echoed in the pandal at Singhu. He said the history would not forgive the traitors for backstabbing the farmers.
Dr Darshan Pal of the Krantikari Kisan Union said the organisations that joined hands with Deep Sidhu would be punished. He said they would take decision in the kisan morcha meeting.
Farmer leader Gurnam Singh Chaduni said whatever happened on Tuesday was BJP sponsored. He also chanted the slogans of ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ and ‘Inquilab Zindabad’ amid massive response from people.
