Strongly opposed the 3 agriculture-related Bills in #LokSabha, as they will sound death knell for 20 lakh farmers, 3 lakh ‘mandi’ labourers, 30 lakh khet mazdoor & 30,000 ‘arhatiyas’ besides destroying food grain procurement system established over 50 years.

SAD was not involved in the consultative process & the party’s representative @HarsimratBadal_ had asked for #ordinances to be delayed till a broad consensus was achieved after talks with farmers. We conveyed this to Union Agri Minister too.
Cong has badly let down farmers of the nation's grain basket which fulfilled 80% food grain requirement in 1980 & supplies 50 % food grains even today. Punjab also sacrificed its water resources & produced rice even during drought.

As a party of the farmers, @Akali_Dal_ cannot support anything which goes against the interest of the ‘annadata’ in the country, especially in #Punjab. So, we opposed the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Bill 2020 in #LokSabha today. 1/4
.@Akali_Dal_ has always championed the cause of the #farmers and has made supreme sacrifices to safeguard their interests. That legacy can’t and will not be compromised or diluted, no matter what price we have to pay. 2/4
The govt has erred grievously in not taking stake holders–farmers & their organisations – on board. @Akali_Dal_ representative in Cabinet @HarsimratBadal_ had raised objections and had requested that the Ordinances be put off. But that not happened. 3/4

Shiromani Akali Dal asks the Govt of India not to present the three central agricultural #ordinances for approval in #parliament until all reservations expressed by ‘Kisan’ organizations as well as farmers & 'khet mazdoors' are duly addressed.

After meeting various farmer & Khet Mazdoor orgs from Punjab as well as adjoining states & also taking view of party workers/leaders, SAD feels that it’s its responsibility to get their reservations addressed & the party is committed to take up all issues raised by them with GOI. Image
As the party’s core committee has decided today, I will lead a delegation to discuss the concerns of the farmers with the central govt. We will hold meetings with the Union govt as well as other like-minded parties to address the apprehensions of farmers in the coming days. Image

.@capt_amarinder & #Congress govt tried to deceive farmers by issuing a false & misleading press statement about the All-Party meeting held yesterday. They committed 'breach of faith' by manipulating press release to show @Akali_Dal_ supported the resolutions moved by them. 1/6 Image
We agreed to accompany the delegation to PM to clarify doubts if any but this was misinterpreted by Cong govt stating that @Akali_Dal_ would accompany to get the Ordinances withdrawn.I have written to CM deriding the manner in which they tried to mislead farmers & misquote me.2/6 Image
There was no discussion on merit about the central Ordinances on agriculture, where we made it clear that there was no mention of ending #MSP or assured marketing in any of the #Ordinances. We had also pointed out that Ordinances didn't contain anything against federalism. 3/6
