Even as he ridiculed Arvind Kejriwal by calling him a "fraud", Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh today said the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) were a bunch of hypocrites whose double standards on the farm laws had exposed their lack of commitment to farmers.

"AAP and SAD MLAs never say what they mean, and vice versa," said the Chief Minister, in an informal interaction with mediapersons here.

When his government passed Bills in the Vidhan Sabha to negate the Centre's farm laws, both AAP and SAD MLAs extended support, but then both parties changed their tune to suit their political interests, said Capt Amarinder. "And now, in a bid to exploit the farmers' agitation, they have again done a U-turn on the issue and are projecting themselves as the messiahs of the farmers, whose interests both parties had been instrumental in pawning off to the BJP," he said.

The Chief Minister said while the SAD was party to the introduction of farm ordinances in the first place, the AAP government in Delhi had been quick to implement one of the draconian laws.

Taking a dig at Kejriwal, Capt Amarinder said the AAP leader had given approval to the farm laws by notifying one of them in the National Capital last month and was now indulging in petty politics over the matter by tearing copies of the laws.
