Chandigarh, March 12
The SAD legislators today said the party would continue to raise its voice against “repression” meted out to farmers and human rights activists in Haryana even if the Khattar government registered cases against them.
“We will not be cowed by cases against us as is being threatened by the Haryana Vidhan Sabha Speaker. We are ready to go to jail for the cause of the farmers. We will continue our agitation against the repressive policies of the Haryana Government,” said SAD legislative party leader Sharanjit Singh Dhillon here.
Protest our right
We did nothing wrong by using our democratic right to protest against Haryana CM Khattar. You can register 10 cases against us, but we will not stop raising our voice in favour of farmers. SAD MLAs
The SAD legislators made it clear they had done nothing wrong by condemning “ill-treatment” of farmers and activists as well as Sikh youth by the Haryana Police.
“We used our democratic right to hold a peaceful protest against Haryana CM Manohar Lal Khattar. We were protesting on our Vidhan Sabha building premises. The Haryana Government is trying to use the same repressive measures against us as it has done with the ‘kisan andolan’. We are, however, ready to make any sacrifice for the cause of farmers,” they said.
