Chandigarh, October 13 – Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) President Sukhbir Singh Badal today said there was no place for violence in democracy and condemned the attack on Punjab Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Ashwani Kumar Sharma by calling it the work of anti- social forces who wanted to sabotage the ongoing ‘kisan’ agitation against the Agricultural marketing Acts.

In a statement here, the SAD President said nothing could be achieved by resorting to violent activities and all acts of violence were condemnable. “Those resorting to such attacks can never be well wishers of the farming community”.

Mr Sukhbir Singh Badal also asked the Congress government to come down heavily on anti-social forces that were being used to defame the farmers cause and not encourage them in any manner whatsoever. “We are very clear that farmers cannot indulge in any such actions and we will oppose any attempt to appropriate the blame on them”.

Mr Badal asked the government to take required measures to ensure such incidents do not reoccur. He also made an appeal for following peace and communal harmony at all costs even as he called upon the centre to talk to agitating farmers in the State to resolve their grievances at the earliest. EOM
