Farm Bills taken up after farmer ultimatum but lot more needs to be done : SAD

Chandigarh, Oct 20 (UNI) The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) on Tuesday said the Congress government had taken up the farm Bills after farmer’ ultimatum but lot more was needed to secure the future of Punjab farmers even as it announced its legislators were ready to resign enmass to ensure the centre gave them their due.
“The fight to secure justice for the ‘kisan’, ‘khet mazdoor’ and ‘arhatiyas’ as well as three crore Punjabis has just started. Now chief minister Capt Amarinder Singh must give a categorical assurance that the State government will purchase all farmer crops including wheat, paddy, cotton and maize at minimum support price (msp) if the centre defaults on the same”, the SAD legislature party said while addressing a press conference here. It also noted that it was unfortunate that the chief minister refused to allay the fears of farmers by giving a concrete assurance in this regard.
Addressing the conference, SAD legislature party leader Sharanjit Singh Dhillon and Bikram Singh Majithia said it was now clear that the Congress government, which was running away from calling a special session, was forced to do so due to the ultimatum served on it by farmers and khet mazdoor. “The truth is that our farmer brothers made chief minister Capt Amarinder Singh relent from his recent statement at Khatkar Kalan where he asserted that there was no point in calling a special session to negate the Agri black laws”.
