SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal today demanded that the anti-farmer and pro-corporate provisions of the Agriculture Produce Market Committee (APMC) Act-2017, enacted by the Congress government, must be scrapped in a special Vidhan Sabha session.

Panel on Dalits

  • SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal has constituted a high-level committee to ensure justice to the Dalit community

  • Former Speaker Charanjit Singh Atwal will be chairman of the committee, which will also ensure stopping of atrocities against the community

Commenting on Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh's statement on convening the session, Sukhbir said the CM's U-turn on the issue was a decisive first victory of the SAD and farmer organistions. This was one of the objectives of the 'Kisan Ros March', organised by the party on October 1, he said.

Sukhbir recalled how Captain Amarinder had ridiculed the Akali Dal demand on the issue.

"But seeing the intensity of rage of Punjabis, especially the farmers, during the October 1 rally and in the protests of the farmer organisations, Captain Amarinder has been compelled to agree to convening a session," said Sukhbir in a statement here.
