BanglaHunt Desk: Arvind Kejriwal, the Chief Minister of Delhi and the leader of the Aam Aadmi Party, has stood by the farmers in the peasant movement. But Arvind Kejriwal also had to face strong criticism from the farmers for his unpleasant behavior while standing by his side. Farmers across India have been protesting against the agriculture bill. The meeting with the center is not going to reach any conclusion. Farmers demand that these three agricultural bills be repealed, not changed.
Controversial map of India
The point is that the Aam Aadmi Party Punjab published a map of India from its official Facebook page in support of the peasant movement. But Kashmir was not seen there. In other words, the Aam Aadmi Party presented a controversial map of India excluding Kashmir from Punjab India. Fighting has started in different quarters.
It is the Aam Aadmi Party which is bent on painting the farmers' issue as treason
To show the peasant struggle @AAPPunjab Made Kashmir disappear from the map of India

Manjinder Singh Sirsa attacked
Former MLA and Akali Dal leader Manjinder Singh Sirsa took a screenshot of the post and wrote from his Twitter handle, “The Aam Aadmi Party wants to paint the peasant movement as treasonous.” We strongly protest against the removal of Kashmir from the map of India and the posting of the map. Arvind Kejriwal, please do not humiliate the country by focusing on the peasant movement.
Earlier, municipal councilors had staged a dharna in front of Arvind Kejriwal's house in Delhi. They demanded that their arrears of Tk 13,000 crore should be settled first. But Chief Minister Kejriwal turned a blind eye and went to support the farmers. The Kejriwal government had to face criticism again on that issue.
