Moreover, he even used derogatory and abusive language while referring to the protesting farmers. Taking offence at these statements, Narinder Shergill had filed a defamation case against Ramesh Bidhuri at Mohali court. On Friday, after a long wait, Narinder Shergill was called to court to submit the evidence.While addressing the media, Shergill said that the BJP, because of their coarse attitude and nature had been abusing the farmers for a very long time, but now they need to know that the farmers of Punjab will not sit silently. "We will make them pay for their words. I have filed this defamation case to show them that even we can fight back through the power of law," he said. Narinder Singh Shergill said that he had been to the Singhu and Tikri borders and had served the protesting farmers. "I have felt their pain and fear. This pain and fear must not be disrespected," he added.
