Former minister Bikram Singh Majithia Tuesday condemned CM Amarinder Singh for insulting the Kisan Andolan by asserting that the agitation was operating efficiently due to help prolonged by the Congress social gathering at the same time as he requested the Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM) to clarify why it was not objecting to political features being held by the Congress and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).
He was speaking to newsmen after welcoming senior Congress and AAP leaders into the SAD fold. They included Congress Kisan Cell vice chairman Satpal Singh Wadali and AAP state committee member Jasbir Singh Wadali apart from leaders from Ranjit Singh Brahmpura’s constituency.
Majithia mentioned it was astonishing that the CM, who had been holed up at his farm home for greater than 4 years, was making an attempt to take credit score for the sacrifices of the courageous farmers.
He mentioned the reality was that the farmers, who had withstood biting chilly in addition to warmth and rain, had been betrayed by the Gandhi household. “The Congress party did not issue a whip against the three agri bills and both Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi did not attend Parliament session when they were introduced for voting. We also know how the Congress party always championed all the provisions of three agriculture acts and had even promised in its election manifesto to privatise APMCs”.
Speaking of the stand of the SKM telling political events not to organise any features, Majithia mentioned the SKM had thrown itself open to questioning.
“The Congress has held political functions at Khemkaran and Batala recently and even yesterday two Congress ministers held functions. AAP has earlier also held a political rally”.
He mentioned SKM itself was talking in several voices. “Even Joginder Singh Ugrahan of the BKU (Ugrahan) has clarified that their fight was against the BJP only,” he mentioned, including that he additionally personally felt that the Kisan Andolan was a nationwide stage motion and shouldn’t be restricted to Punjab alone.
Answering a query, Majithia mentioned it was condemnable that farmers tilling their land throughout the barbed wire fence had not obtained the Rs 10,000 per acre compensation since 4 and a half years. “Even the grant received from the Centre for the same has been misappropriated,” Majithia mentioned.
He mentioned the choice to compensate border farmers for the hardship being confronted by them had been taken by former CM Parkash Singh Badal who had taken up the matter with then Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee. “The previous SAD led government had given full compensation to farmers before demitting office”
Replying to one other question, he made an enchantment throughout social gathering traces to do the appropriate factor vis a vis the Jallianwala Bagh memorial.
