Chandigarh, September 24

Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh today urged all political parties to rise above petty considerations and come on one platform to fight the anti-farmer Bills that would "destroy" the farmers of Punjab.

Why SAD still in NDA?

Is giving up a berth in the Union Cabinet a sacrifice? The Badals clearly do not know the meaning of sacrificehellip; What are you still doing in the anti-farmer NDA govt? - Capt Amarinder Singh, Chief minister

The Chief Minister said he was ready to lead the political fight against the 'unconstitutional' farm Bills. "I will do what it takes to save my farmers and my state from these dangerous new laws, whose implementation will cripple the farming sector and also destroy Punjab's lifeline of agriculture," he added.

In a statement, the CM said the Congress had always stood by farmers and would fight with them shoulder-to-shoulder to scuttle the Centre's plans to ruin not just their families but the entire state.

The BJP-led Union Government had stooped to a new low by bringing these Bills, and that too in an "undemocratic" manner, he said, adding his government would oppose the legislations tooth and nail.

Lambasting the Akalis for trying to change the narrative in a bid to transform the "Punjab v/s Centre" fight into a local political clash for their vested interest, the Chief Minister said they had changed the history of the SAD, reducing it from a political force into a "puppet of the BJP". Captain Amarinder dismissed SAD leader Harsimat Kaur Badal's resignation from the Union Cabinet as a "mockery" of the Akali history of sacrifices.

"Is giving up a berth in the Union Cabinet a sacrifice? The Badals clearly do not know the meaning of sacrifice," he quipped, ridiculing SAD chief Sukhbir Badal's statement that Akali Dal could make any sacrifice for farmers. "What are you still doing in the anti-farmer NDA government at the Centre," he asked the Akali leader. — TNS
