Dushyant Kumar Gautam, BJP national general secretary and the party’s in-charge for Punjab and Uttarakhand, on Sunday said that pro-Khalistan and pro-Pakistan slogans are being raised during the farmers’ agitation and such elements will be arrested. The Rajya Sabha MP claimed that the government is ready to talk to the protesting farmers but they are being misguided by the Congress and other Opposition parties.
