By blocking trains, vindictive Centre trying to teach farmers a lesson: Khaira

Former Leader of Opposition and rebel AAP MLA Sukhpal Singh Khaira Tuesday accused the Centre of acting vindictively against Punjab and trying to teach a lesson to the agitating farmers instead of accepting their legitimate demands. In a statement, Khaira said this discriminatory attitude smacks of hatred and ill-will that the BJP leadership has towards Punjab. He said the agitating farmers have kept their protests peaceful and not a single incident of violence has taken place during the last couple of months of agitation. Instead of accepting their demands or reasoning out with them, the BJP-led NDA government at Centre has stopped all essential commodities supply to Punjab, particularly through the rail network.
