Srinagar: The former chief minister of the erstwhile State of Jammu and Kashmir, Mehbooba Mufti Thursday said that the violence in New Delhi on Republic Day was aimed to defame the farmers and the government must repeal the laws immediately.

In a brief interaction with reporters outside the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) office in Jammu, the PDP Chief said that Republic Day is celebrated as the constitution day but some laws have been enacted in violation of the fundamental rights.

“Some of the laws have been enacted without the consent of the concerned”, she said as per a local news gathering agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO) while referring to the farmer’s bill that led to mass agitation across the nation besides hoisting of the religious flag (Sikhs) at Red Fort on 26 January.

“The laws have unnerved the farmers with fear of losing their land and everything,” she said.

“Government must repeal these farmer’s laws immediately,” she said.

While pointing at the induvial involved in the Republic Day violence in India’s capital, she said that “the man behind the act is BJP’s aide who has been with Prime Minister and Home Minister besides having campaigned for its Member Of Parliament Sunny Deol.”

“I believe the violence in New Delhi is a staged act to defame the farmers”, she said.
