However, Khattar mentioned if he needed to protest, he ought to have pulled the tractor.
On this, Hooda mentioned, “The government has turned a blind eye to the pain of women who are sitting with farmers protesting on borders against farm laws. Power connections were cut at the protest site, you cannot see their pain.”
