Chandigarh, October 31

BJP youth wing general secretary Barinder Singh Sandhu today resigned from the primary membership of the party over the farm laws and the recent decisions taken by the Centre that went against Punjab's interests.

In his letter to BJP state president Ashwani Sharma, Sandhu said the farmer unions, arhtiyas, small traders and labourers were rightly fighting against the Central agricultural laws.

"The Centre, during the recent times, has been taking harsh steps against Punjab. Stopping goods trains and imposing heavy fines and imprisonment on farm fires are some of the steps initiated by the Central Government," Sandhu further said. Criticising BJP national president JP Nadda for using harsh language against farmers, he said being a son of Punjab he had decided to stand with the farmers rising above the party lines.

This is the first resignation of a BJP leader in the Malwa region over the farm laws issue. State general secretary Malvinder Singh Kang had resigned from the primary membership of the party in protest earlier this month.
