The High Powered Committee’s minutes clearly show that the three contentious farm bills were never brought up or discussed in “any meeting” with the Government of Punjab or with any Punjab minister.
The minutes of the meeting with the Union Government have already been released in the public domain. Anyone who reads the minutes will note that the farm bills were neither brought up nor discussed, nor were they on the meeting agenda. This was stated by Punjab Finance Minister Manpreet Singh Badal in a press statement here today.
The Finance Minister added that he had already released the eight-page minutes of the meeting in the public domain on 18th September 2020. Further, to clarify any questions, he had addressed the entire issue in detail on 24th September, 2020. The video of the press conference is available in the public domain.
