Farmers Plan To Boycott PM Modi’s Visit To Punjab On Feb 14

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address public rallies in Punjab on February 14, 16 and 17, covering all three regions of Malwa, Doaba and Majha but farmers plan to boycott his visit.

He will address his first public rally in Jalandhar on February 14, second in Pathankot on February 16, and third in Abohar on February 17.

This development comes after Congress MP Ravneet Singh Bittu on Friday said that the PM should visit Punjab by helicopter or plane as he might face problems if he opts to travel via road in the state.

People of the state have not forgotten that they spent over one year on roads, the Congress leader said.

“He is welcome. We have told the people to listen to the Prime Minister. He should come by air. He would still have problems by road because he has kept every Punjabi on the road for more than a year. How would they forget? More than 700 farmers died during the protest,” Bittu said.

The Prime Minister was stuck atop a flyover for 15-20 minutes while on his way to Ferozepur in Punjab last month due to the road being blocked by some protesters.

The Ministry of Home Affairs termed it as a “major lapse” in his security with the Supreme Court setting up the committee on January 12, headed by retired top court judge Justice Indu Malhotra to probe into the security lapse.

After the security lapse, the Centre and the Punjab government had started separate investigations. Punjab formed a committee of retired Justice Mehtab Singh Gill and Home Secretary Anurag Verma.

While the Centre also formed an inquiry committee headed by the Security Secretary along with Intelligence Bureau and SPG officers. The Central Committee had already started the investigation.
