News: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal visited the Singhu border where thousands of farmers have been protesting against the three new farm laws implemented by the Centre.
After reaching the protest venue, the Delhi CM inspected the arrangements made by the city government for the farmers. Kejriwal’s visit to Singhu border came a day after AAP extended their support towards the nationwide strike called by the farmers on December 8.
On his visit to the Delhi-Haryana border, the Chief Minister was accompanied by some of his cabinet ministers and some party MLAs.
“I checked the arrangements. We receive a lot of pressure to allow the use of stadiums as temporary prisons but we did not give permission and I feel this helped the movement. Since then out party MLAs and ministers have been involved in ensuring that farmers do not face any discomfort”, said the Delhi CM,
Adding, “We are working as ‘sewadaar’. Here I have not come as a chief minister but as a ‘sewadaar’ to serve the farmers. It is our responsibility to support the farmers. I hope soon a solution is reached”.
On the ‘Bharat Band’ called by the farmers on December 8, he stated, “AAP will participate in the nationwide strike. I hope the whole country joins it peacefully and I appeal to them to join and support the farmers.”
