Singhu Border Killing Case: After a corpse of a man was found near the Singhu border where farmers are protesting against three farm laws, National general secretary and Punjab BJP in-charge Dushyant Kumar Gautam alleged that farmers’ protest seems like taken over by criminals. He also said that increasing crime incidents at their protest sites show they are functioning like the Taliban.
Dushyant Gautam said that “the farmers` protest has taken over by some criminals. In the past, a woman was raped and murdered. With the number of increasing crime incidents at the farmers` protest site. Also, it seems they are functioning like Taliban and spreading extremism in the country.”
He added to his statement that “The Congress party was on its toes when the Lakhimpur Kheri violence occurred because there is BJP government in Uttar Pradesh. While in Rajasthan, several Dalits were attacked but Congress party is silent on that issue.”
He further said, “In Congress-ruled states like Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan, violence is on the rise by anti-social element and Dalits are being attacked.”
On Friday, a body of a man, with hands and legs chopped off found hanging on a police barricade at the farmers` protest site near the Singhu border. Police have identified the man’s body as Lakhbir Singh – a 35-36 years old resident of village Cheema Khurd in Tarn Taran district of Punjab.
