Punjab Congress president Amarinder Singh Raja Warring today slammed the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leadership for attempting to associate with the Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance (I.N.D.I.A) to maintain its existence in the state.
Castigating Akali Dal for betraying the farmers by supporting the three contentious farm laws and the dictatorial decision of the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) led central government that killed hundreds of farmers during year-long protest, Warring said that trusting Akali Dal could be more dangerous than trusting a venomous snake. He said that Akali leaders have always mislead the voters to fulfil their own malafide intentions.
Alleging the Akali Dal leadership of intentionally deceiving the farmers, Warring said that the leadership first supported the three ordinances promulgated by the Centre and to retain its cabinet ministry it even held press conferences to convince the farmers about its benefits. Ironically, the moment they realized that the protest is intensifying and the party is fast losing ground in Punjab, it immediately took a U-turn and portrayed themselves as the greatest guardians of the farming community. Though none of their tactics brought fruitful results, they lost the ministry as well as the trust. Now it’s a do and die situation for the Akali Dal and it is mere attempting to associate with I.N.D.I.A for its survival, said Warring.
