AAP leader Ashish Khetan today met farmers of Sanand tehsil in Gujarat, who allegedly clashed with police, while demanding water supply in their villages. Demanding a judicial probe into the incident, Khetan told reporters that the “attack on farmers by police was pre-planned”.

The AAP leader also asked the state government to withdraw police cases against farmers.

“We met farmers from Upardal and Jetpur villages who were injured in the clash. They said they had been demanding supply of water in their villages since last three decades. And the rally taken out on last Tuesday was peaceful, but police attacked them without instigation,” said Khetan.

“Instead of serving people, the BJP government in the state has unfortunately turned against them by intimidating them and not allowing them to voice their grievances,” he alleged.

“We have made four demands from the government — immediately provide water supply to 32 affected villages, provide compensation to injured farmers, constitute judicial inquiry into the matter, and withdraw police cases against farmers,” the AAP leader said.

Some farmers had resorted to stone pelting on police when they tried to stop a rally taken out by them on last Tuesday demanding water supply to their villages, following which police resorted to laathi-charge and firing teargas shells. In the clash, at least seven policemen were injured.

    Look who is calling others Enemy of the Nation. Can there be a bigger enemy of the nation than these AAP goons? These guys are a curse to India and their selfish leader is a vicious agent of some foreign based groups that are bent upon seeing India in a perennially demoralized state that could be made use of for religious conversion and other evils. These goons are up to all kinds of evil by going down to any level to achieve their India-bashing goals and are ever on the look out for opportunity to achieve their dirty end.
