Arvind Kejrival visits Singhu border to take stock of the arrangements made for farmers

The chief minister of national capital territory Arvind Kejriwal alongwith his cabinet colleagues today visited the Singhu Border and met the agitating farmers, interacting with them, not only to boost their morale but to also take stock of the arrangements made by the state government for the agitating farmers sitting at Dharna site at Singhu border.

The deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia also accompanied Arvind Kejrival.

Speaking to reporters Kejrival said that he had gone to assess the the situation and take stock of the arrangements made by Delhi government for the agitating farmers.

He added that the Delhi government got huge pressure from several quarters to convert 9 Stadiums into jail inorder to block the farmers in stadium but his govt refused because it is the fundamental constitutional right of our “anndaataas” to raise their dissent against the three anti farmer laws implemented by the union government.

We have supported the farmers movement since beginning and the govt wanted to put the farmers in temperory jail’s in stadiums but the Delhi government refused to do so.

He asked the agitating farmers whether the facilities provided by the Delhi government are sufficient n satisfactory or not ? The farmers responded in affirmation. While criticizing the ruling political dispensation, not naming the government directly Kejrival said that he received several telephonic calls to give permission to Delhi police for converting the stadiums into temporary jail’s but his government outrightly refused.

The basic aim behind this was to insult n assail the farmers he added. The chief minister was greeted by the agitating farmers at Singhu border with open arms by the farmers who remained with them with quite some time. In one of the tweets Arvind Kejrival wrote : The farmers producing grains for us after day n night hard work are fighting a war for their rights. We should serve and co-operate them dutifully. Assessed the kitchen and medical facilities at the venue. The farmers ( brother’s) should not face any problem.

Tomorrow on 8th December Tuesday there is Bharat Bandh in support of the farmers of the country, the national call given by the All India Kisan Federation comprising of 32 Kisan organisations, participating in the ongoing farmers agitation against the three farm bills. The AAM ADMI Party has accorded its total support to the Bharat Bandh along with all the anti BJP political parties.
