Bhartiya Kisan Union (BKU Haryana) President Gurnam Singh Chadungi has been removed from Sanyukt Kisan Morcha committee after he allegedly met some of the political leaders in New Delhi on Sunday to organise a ‘Jain Sansad’.
Gurnam Singh Chanduni has been asked to appear before a seven-member disciplinary committee. He has also been barred from taking part in a proposed meeting of the farmer unions being held on Tuesday.
“Gurnam Singh used to talk about staying away from political parties and keeping the parties away from the movement but he himself met political parties,” said a source from SKM.
Several MLAs from Punjab and Delhi attended the meeting of farmer leader Chadhuni, including independent MLA from Dadri, Somveer Sangwan.
In the meeting, all those MLAs, former MLAs, MPs and former MPs were invited who are against the new farm laws. Chadhuni was allegedly present in the ‘all-party meeting’ as well.
SKM issues clarification
Samyukt Kisan Morcha has clarified that it is not associated with the “all-party meeting”.
“SKM is not associated with the all-party meeting taken up by Mr Chaduni with political parties. SKM, after taking note of Mr Chaduni’s ongoing activities with political parties, after due discussion on the same in a general body meeting of SKM yesterday, has formed a Committee that will inquire into the matter and give its report in 3 days’ time. SKM will take further steps thereafter,” a statement from the union said.
Chaduni refutes allegations
Meanwhile, Chaduni has refuted the allegations saying that the government is trying to break the protest.
“We will issue a notice to the newspaper that published the article, as well as Kakka. He should have provided some evidence. These are tricks of the government trying to break the protest and they won’t be successful,” said Baratiya Kisan Union chief Gurnam Singh Chaduni.
“This can’t be the allegation of Sanyukta Kisan Morcha but an individual. These are Kakka ji’s(Shivkumar Singh) allegations who himself is an RSS agent. He was head of Rashtriya Kisan Sangh for a long time, a branch of RSS. They’re trying to divide and rule,” he added.
