SAD chief and Ferozepur MP Sukhbir Singh Badal today told Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh "not to double cross Punjabis by playing a fixed match with the Centre" to delay the resumption of freight trains and simultaneously enforcing power cuts in Punjab to defame the ongoing agitation of farm organisations.

Interacting with mediapersons after holding a meeting with party men at Gidderbaha, Sukhbir alleged the Chief Minister did not want to resolve the ongoing crisis.

"This is the reason why Amarinder did not meet the Railway Minister or even the Prime Minister during his recent visit to Delhi. He wants this issue to linger on so that attention is diverted from the failures of his government. However, the Chief Minister is playing a dangerous game which can well push the state into an era of social unrest and economic instability," he said.

Sukhbir further said the Chief Minister would be personally responsible if farmers did not get power to sow the wheat crop. "Even though power at cheaper price is available in abundance, the state government is not purchasing it and deliberately imposing power cuts to turn Punjabis against the farmer organisations," he claimed.

He also criticised the state government for its alleged delay in giving an undertaking to the Railway Ministry that all tracks were clear and that train services to the state should be restarted. "Through the delay in giving the undertaking, Amarinder has not only caused a huge loss to the industry but also delayed the arrival of fertilisers needed for the wheat crop," he said.
