Harsimrat Badal Arrested In Punjab Over Protest Against New Farm Laws

“We are being arrested for speaking out for the rights of farmers,” Harsimrat Badal tweeted

Chandigarh:

Former Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal was arrested while trying to enter Chandigarh on Thursday night while protesting against the new farm laws, a matter over which her party the Shiromani Akali Dal decided to pull out of the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance.

“Arrested for raising farmers’ voice, but they won’t be able to silence us,” Ms Kaur tweeted.

“We are being arrested for speaking out for the rights of farmers, but we are pursuing the truth and our force will not be silenced by this force,” she tweeted.

In visuals, the former Union Minister is seen surrounded by police personnel – all of them in masks amid the coronavirus crisis – as the Akali Dal leader’s supporters try to shield her.

The Akali Dal this morning began three separate “kisan marches” against the new farm farms, which they say will harm the interest of farmers and give room for large companies to manipulate them.

Akali Dal chief Sukhbir Singh Badal has been leading a march from Amritsar, while Harsimrat Kaur Badal came from Bathinda.

The third procession by Akali Dal leaders Prem Singh Chandumajra and Daljit Singh Cheema started from Anandpur Sahib.

All the three groups intended to merge in Chandigarh, where they planned to give a memorandum against the farm laws to Punjab Governor VP Singh Badnore.
