…Sitting pretty in Modi’s lap, Amarinder Singh backstabbing farmers: Harpal Cheema
…Will not budge till draft copies are provided: AAP
Chandigarh, October 19 (Punjab Mail) – The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Punjab MLAs on Monday staged a sit-in inside the House in protest against non supply of copies of the proposed legislation to be tabled in the special session of Punjab Vidhan Sabha against the central farm laws.
In a statement issued from party headquarters in Chandigarh on Monday, Leader of Opposition, accused the Amarinder Singh government of conspiring against the interests of farmers of Punjab by withholding important information regarding deadly Bills related to the future of Punjab, to be tabled in the House.
Cheema said that Amarinder Singh, known for betraying in the interest of the people of Punjab, especially farmers, had once again been preparing to indulge in a skulduggery with the people of Punjab, especially, on the lines of the Water Agreement (Punjab Water Termination Law of Agreement Act-2004).
He said that CM Amarinder Singh, along with the then Manmohan Singh government, got a standing ovation for the alleged bogus water cancellation act, bringing no cheer to Punjab. The LoP alleged that the contentious laws were being introduced on similar lines by the Amarinder Singh government in cahoots with the Modi government at the centre.
The AAP leader further said that was why the information was being kept a top guarded secret, adding that it should have been passed provided to the opposition and the representatives of farmers’ organizations and other agriculture legal luminaries.
