Talwandi Sabo, September 24

Back in Punjab after resigning from the Union Cabinet, SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal today said, "The Akali Dal is the one that made the farmers' issue a national debate by resigning from the Union Ministry in support of farmers."

Addressing party workers at Diwan Hall at Takht Sri Damdama Sahib at Talwandi Sabo, Sukhbir lashed out at the Congress and alleged that in the 2017 Assembly poll and in 2019 Lok Sabha poll, the Congress had promised to repeal the Agricultural Produce Market Committee (APMC) Act, so the Congress was the one who was supporting it and now when SAD had raised this issue in favour of farmers in Parliament, the Congress had also jumped in the favour of farmers.

Sukhbir said the party decided to vote against the Bills after the NDA Government refused to make MSP a statutory right as demanded by farmers and the SAD.

Harsimrat Kaur Badal said she had written an adverse noting on the file when the draft ordinance was shared with her ministry. She said subsequently she had even objected to the ordinances when they were discussed in the Cabinet.
