Punjab chief minister Amarinder Singh focused his Delhi counterpart Arvind Kejriwal for exploiting the continued agitation of the farmers to additional the Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) petty electoral agenda in Punjab with “blatant lies and brazenly false propaganda”.
Cornering Kejriwal, the Punjab chief minister went on to name the AAP chief a “shameless liar”.
“In sharp contrast to the Kejriwal government in Delhi, which had been thriving on Ambani crumbs and had been touting its power reforms under the Reliance-run BSES as its biggest achievement, the Punjab government had neither signed any agreement with Adani Power nor was even aware of the private players bidding for power purchase in the state,” Captain Amarinder stated in an official launch.
Responding to Kejriwal’s announcement that he’ll maintain a one-day quick in help of farmers, the Punjab chief minister quipped: “In fact, the Kejriwal government that was shamelessly notifying one of the “black farm laws” on November 23, at a time when farmers have been making ready to march to Delhi to protest these very farm legal guidelines. And now they’re indulging in theatrics by saying that they might be sitting on quick in help of the farmers’ starvation strike on Monday.”
He additional alleged that Kejriwal and his get together are “busy playing politics” whereas farmers are sitting exterior the nationwide capital for the previous 17 days to hunt justice.
“Do you have no shame? At a time when our farmers are braving the winter cold on the roads outside your city, and many of them are dying fighting for their rights, all you can think of is how to make the most of the opportunity to promote your political interests,” he stated.
Pointing out that Punjab had been buying further energy to help farmers through the sowing season for years, Captain Amarinder stated it was apparent that Kejriwal and his get together “neither knew nor cared about what goes into sowing or what the needs of the farmers are”.
“From backstabbing the farmers by implementing one of the black farm laws, to trying to dump them in a corner of Delhi, Kejriwal had proved time and again that he was no friend of the farmers,” he added.
Hundreds of farmers have been protesting on the outskirts of Delhi since late November 26 demanding the federal government to repeal the newly enacted farm legal guidelines. However, the federal government has held six rounds of talks with farmers’ organisations together with the assembly referred to as by Union Home Minister Amit Shah providing adjustments to the legal guidelines and written assurances.
