Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Tuesday hit out at the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) over its "double standards on the controversial farm laws while pretending to be standing with the farmers".

The Chief Minister said even as AAP was claiming to be supporting the agitating farmers, the Arvind Kejriwal government in Delhi had implemented the black laws through a gazette notification on November 23. He said the notification would spell the death-knell for the 'annadattas' in the national capital.

"First it failed to pass any amendment laws in the Delhi Assembly to negate the Central laws, as was done in Punjab. And now they have officially notified the agricultural legislations in Delhi. AAP's true intent and affiliation has been utterly exposed," Captain Amarinder noted.

Responding to AAP's criticism of his handling of the situation and for taking on his Haryana counterpart ML Khattar, the CM said while he was busy fighting for the rights of his farmers, Kejriwal was preparing to pull the rug under the feet of the farmers, who had been braving atrocities by the Haryana Government in their quest for justice.

"Not once did AAP criticise the brutality inflicted on farmers. The party had failed to even condemn the Akalis for their role in the legislation of the agricultural ordinances," he said.

Captain Amarinder also lambasted AAP for its suggestion that the Punjab Government should pass a Bill in the state Assembly to make minimum support price (MSP) a statutory right for farmers in the state. "It is obvious that AAP either does not understand the problems of farmers or simply does not care," he said, asking that "even if the state has the money to buy all foodgrain, which it simply does not, where would it sell the same?"
