Farmer leaders meet CM Arvind Kejriwal, seek judicial inquiry

A delegation of the Samyukt Kisan Morcha met Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday and urged him for a judicial inquiry into the alleged “conspiracy” against farmers protesting Narendra Modi government’s new farm laws.

In a press conference, the farmer leaders said that the Delhi government informed them that 115 farmers arrested by police were in Tihar jail, and they demanded formation of a medical board to examine them.

They also said to the presser that they formed a legal team and started working to assist those who were missing or lodged in jail.

The legal team met Kejriwal and other leaders on Tuesday and demanded the release of farmers lodged in jails.

They also demanded that tractors and other vehicles seized by police should be given back to the farmers.

“The leaders of Samyukt Kisan Morcha met CM Arvind Kejriwal today to discuss the issue of farmers lodged in jails of Delhi and missing persons in connection with farmers protest. The Delhi government has shared the detailed list of 115 farmers lodged in Delhi’s jails. CM Kejriwal assured the farm leaders full support in their fight for justice,” the Delhi government said in a statement.
