Resolve rail imbroglio soon: SAD

Chandigarh, November 10

Concerned at the loss to farmers, traders and industrialists due to the ongoing economic blockade, the Shiromani Akali Dal today asked the Central and the state governments to hold talks and resolve the issue at the earliest.

A decision to this effect was taken at a meeting of the SAD's core committee that was presided over by party president Sukhbir Singh Badal. The core committee said Punjab was paying a heavy price due to the ongoing fixed match between the BJP-led Centre and the Congress government in the state. "While farmers are not getting supply of much-needed fertiliser for sowing wheat, the trade and industry is losing crores on a daily basis due to the blockade. Even as the state's economy is bleeding, there is danger of social unrest spoiling the peace in Punjab," the committee said.

It further said it appeared CM Capt Amarinder Singh was playing a double game and had hatched a conspiracy to pit farmers against the trade and industry. "It appears the CM is deliberately not taking any initiative to resolve the current imbroglio because he feels the more the issue lingers, the more attention will be diverted from the failures of his government," Sukhbir said. — TNS
