BJP's Punjab in-charge Dushyant Kumar Gautam calls on party president JP Nadda over the killing of a Dalit farmer at the Singhu border. After the meeting, he said that Nadda has expressed grief over the incident. Dushyant Kumar Gautam also alleged that the opposition of farmers has been taken over by some of the culprits and said that the increasing crime cases at their protest sites show that they are acting like Taliban.
The same Deputy Superintendent of Police Hansraj said that earlier on Friday, a man's hand and leg were found chopped off at police barricades at the farmer's protest site near the Singhu border. DSP said an FIR has been registered in the case. The man has been identified as Lakhbir Singh from Cheema Khurd village in Tarantaran district of Punjab. Police said the deceased was about 35-36 years old who worked as a labourer. He has no criminal record or association with any political party.
At the same time, Dushyant Kumar Gautam said that the opposition of the farmers has been taken over by some of the culprits. In the past, a woman was raped and murdered. With the increasing number of crime cases at the protest site of the farmers, it seems that they are acting like the Taliban and spreading extremism. The BJP leader also questioned the Congress party's silence on the issue. "The Congress had raised several questions at the time of Lakhimpur Kheri violence as there is a BJP government in UP. Many Dalits were attacked in Rajasthan but the Congress party is silent on the issue.''
