Dubbing the Railways' decision to link movement of goods trains in the state with passenger trains as irrational and illogical, Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Monday claimed that by defending the decision, the BJP was further fuelling farmers' anger.

BJP indulging in politics

Instead of questioning the Railways and supporting the state in persuading the Centre to allow freight trains, the BJP continues to indulge in politics at the cost of the welfare of the people.

Rejecting BJP state unit president Ashwani Sharma's allegation of "arm-twisting" the Centre, the Chief Minister alleged that it was the BJP leadership that was inciting the farmers with its anti-Punjab stance on the issue.

On Sharma's accusation that the state government had failed to dissuade protesters from blocking train services, the Chief Minister said the fact was that it was his government which had convinced the farmers to ease their blockade to let essential supplies come in. "Even now, several of my Cabinet colleagues are engaged with kisan unions to push for complete lifting of the blockade to allow even passenger movement," he said.
