Farmers’ Protest: Punjab Deputy IG Resigns in Support

New Delhi: Punjab’s deputy inspector general of police (prisons) Lakhminder Singh Jakhar has quit his job in support of farmer’ protest against three new farm laws.

He described the farm law as  “detrimental to the interest of farmers and their future generations”.

“As I am myself a farmer by birth and same being inherited to me from my forefathers who tilled their agricultural lands with hands to grow food and serve mankind. I have always listened to my conscience and now I earnestly feel that I should stand by my brotherhood,” he said in the letter to principal secretary (home).
