BJP’s Abohar MLA Arun Narang, some other party leaders th ra sh ed in Malout town

Muktsar, March 27 – Angry over three new farm laws, a large number of farmers allegedly th r a sh ed BJP MLA from Abohar Arun Narang, tore his clothes and threw black ink on him in Malout town on Saturday.

Terming it a mu r der ous at ta ck, Narang, in the evening, said, “I have a hunch that the state government could be behind it. It needs a thorough investigation. I don’t trust Punjab police now. I have undergone the medical examination; will take further action after consulting with my senior party leadership or whatever Modi ji will direct me. If the state government can’t protect an MLA, then one can better understand the present situation of law and order in the state. Those at ta ck ed me were not the genuine farmers, they seem to be motivated by someone. This is not a kisan aandolan, but go ond aism. Today, it was me, tomorrow, it can be anyone else.”

Narang had come to Malout to hold a press conference against the state government.

The farmers were, however, already waiting for him near the BJP office. As soon as Narang reached there in his car, the farmers gheraoed him and threw ink on him. They also blackened his car.

The cops and BJP workers then took Narang inside a shop. However, when Narang came out, the farmers allegedly at ta cked him with full force, even tore his clothes. In some videos viral on social media, cops are seen saving Narang from the farmers, who, however, continued abu si ng and th ra shi ng him. Meanwhile, some other BJP leaders too were thr as hed by the farmers. Party office was also ransacked.

BJP leaders were again taken inside a shop. After a few minutes, the police took them out from the backdoor of the shop and shifted to a safer place.
