Farmers seeks apology from Kangana for ‘insulting’ them
Shimla, May 2: The Samyukt Kisan Manch Thursday sought an apology from the BJP’s Mandi Lok Sabha candidate Kangana Ranaut for allegedly making insulting remarks against farmers during their 2020-2021 anti-farm laws stir. “How can Kangana seek the votes of the farmers and expect our support when she has insulted the farmer community? She should first apologise,” said SKM convener Harish Chauhan here. During the 2020-2021 farmer agitation against the three farm laws, Bollywood actor Kangana had allegedly misidentified a woman farmer from Punjab and called her Bilkis Bano, an octogenarian who made international headlines during the anti-CAA protests earlier in the Delhi neighbourhood of Shaheen Bagh.
