FM: Will safeguard farmers’ interests

Chandigarh, September 24

Assuring farmers that the Capt Amarinder Singh-led Punjab Government was committed to safeguarding their interests, Finance Minister Manpreet Singh Badal said today that the fight against the agriculture Bills would "continue till our last breath".

No word against PM

Harsimrat Kaur Badal, who has recently resigned from the Union Cabinet, has not even uttered a single word against the BJP and PM Narendra Modi. - Manpreet Singh Badal, Finance Minister

Interacting with mediapersons here, the minister said the Centre's decision was another attack on Punjab and an example of the anti-Punjab stance of the BJP government, which has the Akali Dal as its partner. The Finance Minister said special tax concessions to hill states, GST regime, and now the agriculture Bills had disturbed Punjab's economy.

Slamming the Akali Dal, Manpreet said SAD chief Sukhbir Singh Badal should answer as to why his party was hand in glove with every anti-Punjab decision of the BJP. The farm ordinances, which were recently passed in Parliament, were aimed at lifting the safety cover in the form of MSP, thereby ruining the farmers of the country. — TNS
