Rajya Sabha MP Deepender Hooda on Sunday met the agitating farmers at Thana toll plaza in Kurukshetra and demanded financial assistance and jobs for the family members of the farmers who have lost their lives during the ongoing farmers’ movement.
Hooda said, “The government has been insensitive towards the sacrifices being made by the farmers. It should leave the stubbornness and repeal the three farm laws with immediate effect. The farmers who have lost lives while protesting against the Central government’s laws should be given the status of martyrs, and their family members should be provided government jobs and financial help.”
He said the farmers have been running the biggest movement of the country with solidarity. “Instead of accepting the demands of the farmers, the government is trying to suppress their voice. But the more the government suppresses this voice, the louder its echo will be heard,” he said.
