New Delhi, September 19
Former Punjab minister Navjot Singh Sidhu on Friday broke his year-long silence on Twitter by popping out strongly in opposition to the farm payments handed by the Lok Sabha.
Sidhu, who final visited Twitter on September 25, 2019, when he vacated his official bungalow as Punjab cupboard minister after resigning, stated farming is the soul of Punjab and assault on the soul wouldn’t be tolerated.
“Farming is the soul of Punjab. Wounds on the body can heal but wounds of the soul will not be tolerated and condoned,” he stated on Twitter, expressing solidarity with farmers who’re up in arms in opposition to the legislations handed by the Lok Sabha.
Sidhu tweeted that farmers are the satisfaction and identification of each Punjabi.
“Sarkaarein tamaam umr yehi bhool karti hain, Dhool unke chehre par thi aaeena saaf karti hain,” Sidhu tweeted, declaring help for farmers and telling them to organize for a wrestle in opposition to the federal government which has “snatched their rights”.
