Punjab Rural Development and Panchayats Minister Tript Rajinder Singh Bajwa today said that Shiromani Akali Dal a co-partner of the BJP in launching attack on the already weakened federal structure of the country under the garb of farm sector reforms.

In a statement, Bajwa said, “Akali Dal’s representative in the Modi government Harsimrat Kaur Badal was not only part of the decision to deregulate the farm sector, she later hailed it and her husband and party president Sukhbir Singh Badal echoed her views the next day”.

He said the two ordinances cleared by the Modi government and promulgated immediately not only hit at the federal structure of governance in the country but also start the countdown for making the minimum price support system and state marketing boards irrelevant and meaningless.

He said the support extended by Sukhbir Badal to the ordinances not only amounted to stabbing the farmers in the back but also adversely impact the farm economy thereby further impoverishing the farmers.

The present Akali leadership had put a blot on the history of the Akali Dal in the process for which they would never be forgiven by the people, he added. “It is now more than clear that the Sukhbir-Majithia can’t survive without the state power, to grab which they can sell the interests of the party, the people and the state. This family now stands thoroughly exposed”, Bajwa added.

He asserted that it was not for the first time that the Akali Dal had backtracked from its historical agendas. Earlier, it extended support to the abrogation of Article 370 ending the special status of Jammu and Kashmir going against the party line as the party too had been demanding similar status for Punjab at one time.

He said the Captain Amarinder Singh government would fight at every level against this exploitation of the farmers by the Modi government of which the Akali Dal was a partner.
