Bengaluru: Former PM and Janata Dal (Secular) MP HD Devegowda on Thursday condemned the violence during farmers’ protest on Republic Day.


Speaking in the Rajya Sabha, he said, “The Centre’s decision to put concrete walls at protest sites won’t help. The government must end the matter peacefully.  Farmers aren’t responsible for the violence and shouldn’t be punished”

“The matter is a state subject, it’s in the concurrent list. State government’s opinion also has to be taken. The contention is about the three bills enacted by the House, although on that day there were no proper proceedings conducted as the House was not in order,” he added
