When the Union Government announced that the controversial Agriculture bills would be called back, everyone thought that farmers who had protested against the government would go soft against the Union government. Proving everyone wrong, the farmers were still unhappy with the Centre and showed their anger against the government.
Narendra Modi's Punjab tour ahead of the general elections ended before it was started after the farmers had blocked the flyover on which the Prime Minister's convoy was traveling. As a result of this, the Prime Minister had to cancel his meeting in poll-bound Punjab.
Going into details, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had called for a Punjab tour as part of which he was scheduled to pay a visit to the National Martyrs Memorial, which would be followed by a massive meeting. At the meeting, the Prime Minister would launch a few development projects in the state.
As per the earlier schedule, Prime Minister Narendra Modi was supposed to reach the memorial in a helicopter. But he had to change his plans after the climatic conditions did not favor him.
The change in the plans turned chaotic when Prime Minister Narendra Modi's convoy was stopped on the flyover for not less than 20 minutes.
After he left Punjab post a brief stop, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had sarcastically thanked Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi and asked the officials in Punjab to convey his thanks to the Chief Minister. I am returning safely. Thank the Chief Minister for this, Modi said.
The Bharatiya Janata Party(BJP) was not happy with this and leveled against the Punjab government that the SoS has been ignored by the government and alleged that the state government had failed miserably to send extra security for the Prime Minister who is traveling by road due to the climate reasons.
The Ministry of Home Affairs had also written to the Punjab government over the incident and alleged that what happened in the state was a major security lapse. In the letter, the Ministry sought a report on the incident from the Punjab government. MHA asked why the protestors were allowed to block the flyover
