SAD’s fresh stand on ordinances poll gimmick: Capt

Chandigarh, September 13

Dubbing the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) chief's U-turn on farm ordinances as a "cheap gimmick to hoodwink the farming community", Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh today challenged Sukhbir Singh Badal to quit the BJP-led Central Government to prove his party's sincerity in the matter.

Pointing out that as a member of the ruling alliance at the Centre, the SAD was party to the ordinances and had supported them unconditionally, the Chief Minister slammed Sukhbir over his party's "brazen double standards on the issue" and asked if the Akali leader was ready to vote against the ordinances in Parliament as and when the Central Government puts them to vote. The Chief Minister termed as total hogwash the SAD's so-called appeal to the Union Government not to present the three Central agricultural ordinances for approval in Parliament until all reservations expressed by farmer organisations were addressed. It is more than obvious now that the SAD president had lied then in a deliberate bid to mislead the farmers, he said, adding that given his track record, nothing that Sukhbir was saying now on the issue could be believed. — TNS
