Chandigarh, January 4
Haryana Leader of Opposition Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Monday said the Congress Legislature Party would provide a financial assistance of Rs 2 lakh each to families of farmers who have died during the agitation against the Centre’s farm laws.
Hooda said all Congress MLAs would make efforts to help the families.
The former Haryana Chief Minister also demanded from the state government to provide financial help and government job to a member of the each family.
He said it was the responsibility of the government to do so as people had lost their lives because of its stubborn attitude and insensitivity.
“In such a situation, the government should come forward to help the affected families without delay. If the present government does not do this, then this work will be done whenever the next Congress government is formed,” said the Hooda.
During the ongoing agitation at the borders of Delhi, many farmers have lost their lives. PTI
