Chandigarh, October 21

A day after the Punjab Assembly passed the four farm Bills with the support of Akalis and the Aam Aadmi Party, the SAD today made a U-turn and said the Bills would not be of much use.

Senior SAD leader Bikram Singh Majithia said the Bills "have thrown the farmers of the state completely back at the Narendra Modi government's mercy". He added: "All this is being done under a conspiracy between the state government and the Centrehellip; with no responsibility for purchase of the crop."

Majithia asked how the state government would help the farmer if the private player and the Centre didn't buy the crop at MSP.

He said the Bills had created new problems for the farmers as their sale below MSP would be "invalid" and they couldn't claim payment if the buyer backed out. The Akali leader said the Bills were prepared on the lines of a Parliament Bill, requiring Presidential assent. Majithia alleged Captain had chosen to side with Modi and stabbed the farmers of Punjab in the back.

Majithia condemned the clean chit given to Sadhu Singh Dharmsot and demanded a "court-monitored" inquiry into the scholarship funds scam, as it affects the future of children from weaker sections.
