Sukhbir asks Rahul why he played a ‘fixed match’ to facilitate Agri Bills

Chandigarh, October 3, 2020: Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) President Sukhbir Singh Badal today asked Congress leader Rahul Gandhi to tell Punjabis why he had played a fixed match to facilitate the passage of the three anti-farmer Agri Bills in Parliament, even as he asked Rahul if he supported the clean chit given to Social Welfare minister Sadhu Singh Dharamsot by Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh in the SC scholarship scam.
Addressing a press conference here in the SAD head office, Sukhbir Singh Badal said that before indulging in photo ops in Punjab tomorrow, Rahul Gandhi should tell Punjabis why he had betrayed their cause and initiated the process to make the Agri Bills a reality.
“I want to ask Rahul five questions. Did your party’s 2017 election manifesto in Punjab say that you will open private ‘mandis’ and give permission for e trading the contract farming which is in force now? If so, why haven’t you repealed the amended APMC Act in Punjab till now? Did you in your 2019 election manifesto state that you will abolish the APMC Act altogether and make agri-trade free from all restrictions? Why did you choose to leave the country one day before the Agri Bills were to be taken up in Parliament and come back the day they became Acts? Also why didn’t you issue a whip to your mps to vote against the Bills and field senior leaders to oppose them?”
Speaking about the clean chit given to Sadhu Singh Dharamsot despite being indicted in an inquiry conducted by an Additional Chief Secretary, Sukhbir Badal said Rahul Gandhi should tell the Dalit community in Punjab whether he was in agreement with this action.
“Rahul should also tell if he is in agreement with the Chief Minister’s decision to give an open license to Congress ministers to loot central funds sent for distribution to Scheduled Caste students.”
