On Sunday, Punjab’s Deputy Inspector General, Prisons, Lakhwinder Singh Jakhar, resigned in protest against the contentious farm laws, reported IANS.
In May, Jakhar was suspended for supposedly accepting kickbacks from prison authorities, be that as it may, the 56-year-old official was restored two months back. In his acquiescence letter, as detailed by The Indian Express, he stated: “I am a rancher first and a cop later. Whatever position I have today, it is on the grounds that my dad filled in as a rancher in the fields and he made me study. Thus, I owe my beginning and end to cultivating.”
“I have completed all the formalities and hence, I don’t think that there will be any hassle in accepting my resignation,” he added. He said he would join the farmers’ protest in Delhi soon, after, he said, his mother encouraged him to resign so as to sit with farmers in Delhi.
