Bathinda, August 10

Shiromani Akali Dal president Sukhbir SIngh Badal today said he was ready to make “any personal or political sacrifice” in the fight to preserve, safeguard and promote the cause of the peasantry in Punjab.

The SAD president was talking to a delegation of the All India (Kul Hind) Kisan Sangharsh Coordination Committee at his residence this morning. “Be it the issue of any threat, present or future, to the MSP regime with assured marketing of the crop or to free power facility for the farmers introduced by the SAD-BJP. We will never allow anyone to rob the already beleaguered peasantry through fanciful new ideas,” he said. On the alleged confusion on the intricacies of the ordinances, Sukhbir said: “As farmers, we are simple and straight-forward people and we want everything put in simple and straight words. I have already conveyed to the Union Government that neither the MSP regime with assured marketing nor the free power facility in Punjab can be allowed to be withdrawn under any pretext.”

In response to a question from leader of the delegation on assured marketing under the MSP regime, the SAD president said he had thoroughly studied the three ordinances issued by the Union Government and found nothing in them which might imply that the government would withdraw from the market. — TNS
