Chandigarh, October 21

Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh today slammed the SAD and AAP for playing to the galleries by pretending to back the farm Bills in the Vidhan Sabha yesterday and denouncing these soon after.

Other states seek copies of Bills

The state government has got a major boost as the governments of Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand sought copies of the farm Bills, with the intention of emulating these in their states.

The CM said both parties spoke in favour of the Bills in the Assembly and even went with him to meet the Governor, but adopted a different stance publicly.

Talking to mediapersons after the House was adjourned sine die, he pointed out these parties were not interested in securing the future of the farmers, who had not said anything against the Bills.

Slams Kejriwal

"Are you with the farmers or against them," CM Capt Amarinder Singh on Wednesday asked his Delhi counterpart Arvind Kejriwal after he questioned the Bills' legality.

"If they thought we were fooling the people of Punjab, why did they not say so in the House? Why did they support and vote for our Bills?" asked Captain Amarinder, reacting to SAD leader Bikram Singh Majithia and AAP leadership's statements. They had both accused the Chief Minister of misleading the people, citing his remarks on the possibility of the Governor/President not signing the Bills.

"If I had to fool the people, why would I openly talk about the possible scenarios instead of feeding them with lies, as the Akalis and AAP are used to doing?" Capt asked.

The Chief Minister reiterated he didn't not care if the Centre dismissed his government, but he would fight to protect the rights of the farmers till his last breath. — TNS
