After getting vaccinated himself, Dampy Phalwan says the Modi government will be responsible if farmers get COVID-19

Amidst the alarming surge of COVID-19 cases in Delhi, BKU spokesperson and selfproclaimed ‘farmers’ leader Dampy Phalwan held the central government responsible if farmers protesting at the borders of the national capitals are infected with the coronavirus. Even as Delhi is under a strict 6-day lockdown, Dampy Phalwan insisted that it cannot be a reason to put the ‘farmers’ protest on hold.
Dampy Phalwan, who has gotten vaccinated himself, said that it is the central government’s responsibility that farmers protesting along the Delhi borders do not contract the coronavirus.
Speaking with Republic Media Network, Dampy Phalwan said, “Responsibility lies solely with the government if the farmers get infected with the virus. When the COVID-
19 cases are rising across the country, who is responsible for it? Are farmers responsible for that too?”
He further added, “If there is a disease, then the government should ensure treatment for it and build hospitals for it. Politicians are collecting funds for other purposes. They are conducting rallies and contesting elections.”
