Haryana Home Minister Anil Vij on Monday hit back at Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh’s “irresponsible” statement regarding farmers and said that it clearly indicates instigating the farmers.

Vij tweeted here today that “Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh ji telling farmers to do whatever they want in Haryana or Delhi and don’t do it in Punjab is a very irresponsible statement. This proves that Amarinder Singh has done the work of instigating the farmers”.

It is noteworthy to mention that Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh said during a function in Hoshiarpur that farmers should not agitate in Punjab.

They do whatever they want by going to Haryana and Delhi, but do not spoil the atmosphere of Punjab. He also said that farmers are sitting on dharna at 113 places in Punjab, which is causing financial loss to the state.

The chief minister also said the Punjab government has given full support to the farmers’ movement. Had the Punjab government stopped, there would not have been such a crowd at the Singhu and Tikri borders, he said.

The CM also said that Punjab was the first state whose government refused to implement these agrarian reform laws. Capt Amarinder had said after this we sent our laws but the governor did not forward them, due to which we could not implement them.
