Amid farmers’ protests at various borders in the capital Delhi over three agricultural laws, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar and Deputy Chief Minister Dushayant Chautala on Tuesday said there was no threat from the BJP-JJP coalition government.
Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar and Deputy Chief Minister Dushyant Chautala on Tuesday said there was no threat to the BJP-JJP coalition government and that it would extend its five-year term to one hour with Union Home Minister Amit Shah. After a long meeting, Khattar and Chautala said they talked about the current law and order situation in the state. “There is no threat from the Haryana government and it will complete its five-year term,” Chaitala told PTI.
At the same time, Khattar said, “There is no reason to speculate about the future of the government, it will fulfill its tenure.” The Chief Minister said that Haryana is the epicenter of farmers’ protests, so he has maintained law and order in the state, including the Home Minister. “We also discussed the celebration of January 2 without any hassle.” Khattar said that after the Supreme Court’s decision to stop the implementation of agricultural laws, he hoped that the farmers would end their protest. “It’s a national festival and everyone understands its importance and the values associated with it,” he said. Chaitala said the Supreme Court has constituted a committee and he hoped the issue would be resolved soon.
Besides Khattar and Chautala, BJP state president and members of the Jananayak Janata Party (JJP) and state cabinet were also present at the meeting in the northern block here. Prior to the meeting, Shah and Dushyant met JJP MLAs at a farm house here, some of whom said the ruling coalition would suffer if the laws were not repealed. It is believed that some MLAs of the Jananayaka Janata Party led by Dushyant Chautala are under pressure from the protesting farmers.
