Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Tuesday said it is painful to see farmers lose lives in this manner (in the ongoing protest).
At an all-party meeting, the Chief Minister said 88 farmers had lost their lives during the struggle against the “anti-farmer” laws as they had died fighting for their rights.
Before the start of the meeting, the leaders observed a two-minute silence and paid tributes to those who had died.
Punjab Congress chief Sunil Jakhar said, “Chinese soldiers at Galwan are armed with spears and spiked batons against our jawans. Delhi Police is armed with spears, batons and spiked roads at Singhu border against our kisans. Learning from Chinese? The BJP has lost the right to say ‘Jai Jawan Jai Kisan’.”
