End drama, declare state a mandi: SAD to CM

Share This

Muktsar, November 4

SAD chief-cum-Ferozepur MP Sukhbir Singh Badal today said if Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh really wanted to do something for the farming community, he should go on an indefinite fast in front of the Prime Minister's residence rather than holding a "farcical protest" in Delhi to befool farmers.

Interacting with mediapersons on the sidelines of workers' meetings at Malout and Muktsar town today, Sukhbir said, "Amarinder should start fast unto death outside the PM's residence, but he is unlikely to do it because he's playing a friendly match with the Centre. So much so that Amarinder even changed the venue of his today's sit-in from Rajghat to Jantar Mantar at the instance of the Centre. It is also strange that Amarinder is questioning the role of Punjab's Governor in Delhi. He should have first visited the Governor in Chandigarh and then asked him why he was not forwarding the Bills passed recently by the Vidhan Sabha and then only made a programme to call on the President."

He added, "It is unfortunate that instead of trying to resolve the grievances of farmers and getting inbound goods trains to Punjab restarted, Amarinder was indulging in a drama. If Amarinder is really worried for the farming community, he should declare the entire state as a mandi for agricultural produce. Now, the Congress Government in Chhattisgarh has passed a Bill in this regard, which is signed by the Governor as well." — TNS
