.@Akali_Dal_ is ready to sign any document seeking a written answer to this query. This isn't all. In Parl also during the discussion on #Ordinance, we will insist on an assurance from the GOI that #MSP and Assured Marketing system will remain in place. 2/5

For @Akali_Dal_ no ministry, govt & alliance is beyond the welfare of ‘anndaata’. We are ready to make any sacrifice for the welfare of farmers & disadvantaged sections of society. We'll steadfastly continue to protect the rights of Punjabis & the core principle of federalism.3/5 Image
