Bathinda: On January 26, Lakha Singh Sidhana, an accused who is absconding in the violence in Red Fort, attended a rally in Bathinda, Punjab on Tuesday in protest against the new agricultural laws. Delhi Police has declared a reward of Rs 1 lakh for the arrest of Lakkha Sidhana.
Gangster-turned-social activist Lakhbir Singh alias Lakha Sidhana released a video on social media on Saturday, organizing a Kisan Sabha at Mehraj in Bathinda on 23 February and urged a large number of people to reach this public meeting. In the video, Sidhana accused the Central Government of trying to scare the farmers by filing false cases against them. In this video, Sidhana also indirectly targeted Rakesh Tikait, the national spokesperson of the Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU).
Sidhana said in his video that the peasant movement has now been captured by people who are not even Punjabi. He has said that the farmers' movement is seven months old and has reached its peak. In the video, he was saying that millions of people should reach Bathinda district Mehraj Pind on 23 February for a demonstration. Come, my brothers, try it in large numbers to know that we are with the farmer movement.
