Mumbai: Former Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal on Thursday pulled up the government at the Center over the treatment received by farmers opposing agricultural laws at various borders in Delhi.
She also said that the police along with other opposition leaders stopped them from crossing the barricading to meet the protesting farmers on the Ghazipur border.
The Shiromani Akali Dal leader said, “First look at the conditions on the border of Ghazipur. Shocked to see the treatment being meted out to the annadaata. Farmers are barricaded behind fortress-like concrete barriers and barbed wire fencing. Even ambulances and fire brigades cannot enter the protest site.”
