Amarinder flays Badals for playing double game on farm laws

Amarinder flays Badals for playing double game on farm laws

Ballowal Saunkhri, Sep 13 (UNI) Launching a fierce attack on the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) for double crossing the farmers over the issue of contentious farm laws, Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Monday said that the farm laws were drafted with the consent of SAD with Harsimrat Kaur Badal as the Union Minister and even the former chief minister Parkash Singh Badal arguing in favour of these laws but changing their tune completely when their move backfired.
Calling Congress as the only party who protested against these black laws from the very first day, Capt Amarinder said that his Government called All Party meeting and then held consultations with the farm unions. Afterwards, the Punjab Government convened a special session of the Punjab Vidhan Sabha and passed Bills aimed at countering these farm laws.
Taking on the Union Government, the Chief Minister said that the constitution has been amended 127 times since 1950. "So why not one more time to repeal the farm laws for providing succour to the farmers who have been sitting at Singhu and Tikri borders," said Capt Amarinder Singh adding that the Punjab Government has provided Rs 5 lakh to every farmer from the State who died during the agitation against farm laws besides a job to the kin of the deceased farmers.
