Haryana Deputy Chief Minister Dushyant Chautala will meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday in the midst of the farmers’ agitation which is going on for the last six weeks in protest against the agriculture laws of the central government, who is likely to discuss protest related matters. Chautala met Home Minister Amit Shah on Tuesday.
Dushyant Chautala is the leader of the Jananayak Janata Party (JJP), a coalition partner in the BJP government in Haryana. It is believed that some JJP MLAs are under pressure from the protesting farmers. The JJP said in a statement that Dushyant Chautala will meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday.
JJP MLAs warned
Earlier, a group of JJP MLAs have said that if the central government does not withdraw the agricultural laws, then the coalition government in the state may have to pay a heavy price. The legislators made the claim hours before JJP chief and Deputy Chief Minister Dushyant Chautala met Union Home Minister Amit Shah. JJP MLA Jogi Ram Sihag said that the Center should withdraw these laws as farmers of Haryana, Punjab and the country are against these laws. They said that we will urge Dushyant ji to inform Amit Shah ji about our feelings.
