Harsimrat Kaur Badal asks CM why he is playing friendly match with Centre

Bathinda, Oct 28 UNI (UNI) Former union minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal on Wednesday asked chief minister Capt Amarinder Singh to tell why he was playing a friendly match with the centre to dupe farmers and asked him to answer the four questions put to him by SAD President Sukhbir Singh Badal. Did you annul the central Agri laws? When will the new Bills passed by the Punjab Vidhan Sabha come into being? Have the Bills made msp a statutory right of famers and has he guaranteed government purchase of 24 crops falling under the msp regime?
Interacting with media persons on the sidelines of the inauguration ceremony of the radio-diagnosis wing of the AIIMS, Bathinda Mrs Harimrat Badal also asked the central government to drop its move to slash States' share in the taxes. Keeping in view the increased burden on States, the center should increase the share of States’ from 42 per cent to 52 per cent instead of reducing it”.
While questioning the Centre for not resuming services of goods trains in Punjab, Mrs Badal said “the agitating farmers have already vacated the rail tracks for the plying of goods trains but the Centre is not resuming the service, which may amount to an economic blockade of the sensitive border state and also damage its already weakened economy.” She said it was surprising that chief minister Capt Amarinder Singh first made the farmers vacate the tracks on the pretext coal shortage but then failed to prevail on the centre to resume services. All this indicates that the chief minister is hand in glove with the centre in defaming the farmers”.
