SAD terms unanimous passage of 3 Farm Bills as big victory for farmers and khet mazdoor

Chandigarh, Oct 20 (UNI)The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) on Tuesday termed the unanimous passage of the three Bills to counter Delhi’s farm laws as a big victory for farmers and ‘khet mazdoor’ who forced the government to take a u turn and hold a special session to pass the same, even as it announced its legislators were ready to resign enmass to secure the right of farmers from the centre.
“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 real victory is that of our farmer brothers who even 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”.
