Farmers’ ire makes BJP’s Faridkot pick Hans Raj Hans emotional | India News

BATHINDA: Facing the wrath of protesting farmers, Hans Raj Hans, BJP candidate for Faridkot Lok Sabha seat, turned emotional on Friday, saying the way he is being treated by protesters anything can happen to him by June 1.
“If anything wrong happens to me, people must preserve my memory as a person who cared for humanity,” Hans said while trying to staunch his tears at Daulatpur Neeva village in Moga district, in Faridkot LS seat.
Hans was narrating Thursday’s incident when he was stopped by protesting farmers in Sangrur district while on his way to Patiala to participate in a rally to be addressed by PM Modi.
The singer-turned-politician said it was a horrifying experience as nearly a 1,000-strong crowd surrounded his vehicle. He said he feared for his life as the protesters behaved badly with him and damaged his vehicle, and that two people were injured.
“When the protesters surrounded me…it was due to the efforts of ADGP Jaskaran Singh, DIG Narendra Bhargava and the Patiala and Sangrur SSPs that I was saved,” Hans told TOI.
