Leader of the Haryana Congress legislature party (CLP), Kiran Choudhry, accused Dhankar of displaying egregious insensitivity with his remarks that 'farmers who commit suicide are cowards and criminals and sought said that he should render public apology and should withdraw his remarks.

She said, "He crossed all limits of insensitivity that too, at a time when the farmers across the state were suffering; it was quite unbecoming of a person who held a Cabinet rank."

``Also, it reflects the anti-farmer thinking of the BJP government which works only for the corporates and industrialists," she added.

Meanwhile, Haryana Janhit Congress MLA from Hansi Renuka Bishnoi also flayed Dhankar's comment terming it to be irresponsible and insensitive towards farmers.
