Accusing the Akalis of "selling" Punjab's interests by agreeing to the anti-farm ordinances, Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Saturday asserted that he would take the fight against the ordinances to the Centre.

Capt Amarinder said he would soon take an all-party delegation of the state to meet the Prime Minister.

"No matter what Sukhbir Badal or the BJP say, once these ordinances are passed, the Centre's next step would be to end the MSP regime and dismantle the FCI," claimed Capt Amarinder.

"You can imagine what will happen to Punjab farmers if this becomes a reality," he said, adding that the procurement process would come to an end and the mandis would be finished once the ordinances became law.

"The Akalis are only interested in protecting their political interests. The Badals are always trying to appease the BJP so that their alliance in Punjab remains intact," the Chief Minister alleged.

Underlining the need to save Punjab and protect its interests, the Chief Minister said the ordinances were against the state and farmers, as agreed by all political parties, except the BJP and the Akalis. All kisan unions, who he had recently met, also wanted immediate scrapping of these ordinances, Capt Amarinder added.
