In this video Rajowal the Kisan leader articulates how Manjinder Sirsa took this as a photo opportunity to get eyeballs in order to have votes casted. This video reached out to the bureau after SKM’s Prem Singh Bhangu and his attorney Vir Sandhu made a statement highlighting the role played by the DSGMC attorney’s in freeing the farmers after the mayhem which occurred on January 26th. It’s interesting to note that although Manjinder Singh’s coverage was on social media, it did win the hearts of the youth. Although Mr. Manjinder Sirsa’s affiliation to the BJP as an elected MLA is well known, the 3 draconian farmer laws made were done by the BJP government. Questions that are unanswered are – Is this soft stance and approach to get the bails another ploy being used by the BJP, motivated to get Mr. Sirsa as a hero in the eyes of the Sikh community? Is the aim for him to be in
stalled as the next chief minister of Punjab? Who is going to address the cases of the missing protestors? Who are the supporters of the BJP and who are their accomplices in the diaspora and are they being paid by the BJP?
These are some very inquisitive questions that are in the minds of the people. One will have to be extremely cautious and alert, especially of the new media blogs that have sprung up during the Kissan campaign promoting the BJP indirectly and condoning Sikh organizations.
