Punjab Police has once again used violent force.Elderly Farmers had been protesting peacefully when the Punjab police assaulted these poor sikhs with tear-gas and Lathi charges. The ensuing baton charge took the life of one farmer and left many severely injured. It is said that Punjabi CM, Parkash Singh Badal has often been responsible for such acts. Dy. CM Sukhbir Badal has justified this baton charge.
This is a heartbreaking video to see Punjab Police(sikhs) using force and severely beating its people once again. Punjab is today a land of intimidation, suicides, drugs and alcoholism, all because of the power of corruption. Billions of dollars are made in the exploitation of the people of Punjab (the land of our Guru,s).
After seeing this video my eyes were wet with tears but most of all my heart was screaming to Waheguru jee for Insaaf. Please please Waheguru jee ,hear my screams and help us, please please Guru Gobind Singh jee, these are your children, please help us, save Punjab from this brutality. Give us justice. These are our brothers and sisters that are suffering.Through the night this scenes kept me disturbed and distressed.
What is the solution. The only solution is for us to unite and fight this injustice.
If We Are Together Nothing Is Impossible. If We Are Divided All Will Fail.” – Winston Churchill
The farmers were demonstrating under the banner of Kisan Sangharsh Committee (KSC), the leading farmers’ organization in the Majha region.
A heavy police contingent headed by three Additional DCP-rank officials was called to deal with the protesters. The police used tear gas shells and charged at the protesters with heavy sticks. The farmers retaliated, attacking the policemen with stones and sticks. A woman, identified as Swaran Kaur of Kaler Ghuman village, was injured in the melee. She was admitted to Guru Nanak Dev Hospital.
The Farmers’ leader, Sawinder Singh Chutala said a number of farmers had been injured. He said his colleagues Satnam Singh Pannu, Sarwan Singh Pandher and Sikander Singh Samra were among those arrested.
The farmers, who have been on an indefinite protest, are demanding that power rates be slashed to ₹1 per unit and free connections be given to those with less than five acres of land.
All sections of society have condemned the inhumane act by the Punjab Police and many have criticized Parkash Badal, the Chief minister of Punjab.
