Fazilka: Jagmeet Singh Brar visited villages along the international border and met displaced villagers in the evacuee camps set up in Fazilka district today.

During a press interaction he said “The people of Punjab have always been the first line of defense for our nation and we will proudly support our Jawans in every way possible.”

He added “While we support the Army wholeheartedly, we must also prepare for the impact of this evacuation because of its timing& the economic condition of these villages”

He also reminded those present of the JAI JAWAN JAI KISAN slogan coined by PM Lal Bahadur Shastri he said “ We have avenged the martyrdom of our Jawans in Pathankot& Uri, now the nation must not let this celebration drown the cries of our Kisaans who are dying in a circle debt, drugs& suicides – I urge all political parties to set aside their campaigns for a few days and divert resources to help those evacuated from our borders, and once again beg the Govt to give these poor people fair compensation - they have not received previous claims, now don’t let this evacuation kill our brothers in their homes”

He concluded his remarks by saying “While our soldiers protect our borders we must protect their villages from death& despair – we must protect the families whose sons join the army to protect us. I appeal to all sections of society and all political parties to step forward and help these families”
