Mamata Banerjee – Chief Minister, West Bengal:
Deeply disturbed by worrying & painful developments that have unfolded on the streets of Delhi.
Centre’s insensitive attitude and indifference towards our farmer brothers & sisters has to be blamed for this situation.
First, these laws were passed without taking farmers in confidence. And then despite protests across India & farmers camping near Delhi for last 2 months, they’ve been extremely casual in dealing with them.
Centre should engage with the farmers & repeal the draconian laws.
