Chandigarh, October 24

Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Saturday said the recent remarks of Sukhbir Singh Badal showed the Akali leader had completely lost the political narrative, making him desperate to find a way out of the situation his party finds itself in over the farmers' issue.

"The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) chief seems to have been jolted into desperation by the entire farm laws saga, which had completely exposed the double standards of the Akalis," said the CM.

He was reacting to Sukhbir's remarks on the easing of 'rail roko' by kisan unions and his suggestion that the state government should have taken SAD's advice before coming out with the amendment Bills in the Vidhan Sabha. Sukhbir has accused the CM of colluding with the Centre to get the farmers' blockade lifted.

Ridiculing Sukhbir's suggestion on going to the Akalis for advice, the Chief Minister said, "It seems the NDA government at the Centre had taken the advice of then allies, the Akalis, in the matter of the anti-farmer, anti-federal and anti-constitutional farm laws." That would explain why they messed it up so badly and took the unilateral decision to impose laws that are clearly designed to ruin the farmers, he said.

Terming the Akali president's allegation of collusion between him and the BJP ludicrous, Capt Amarinder said Sukhbir appeared to be in a state of mental despair and denial, which was leading him to make such remarks. "Does Sukhbir really believe I would lead my party to political suicide with such an act?" said the CM.
