Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president Sukhbir Singh Badal on Tuesday alleged that Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi had admitted that the Congress government did not have any intention of implementing a complete Rs 90,000 crore farm loan waiver as promised.

He alleged that the Congress government had made a promise to Punjab farmers by swearing an oath on holy Gutka Sahab, but it had failed to fulfill it. Sukhbir Singh Badal accused Charanjit Singh Channi of resorting to trickery and treachery to squirm his way out of the commitment by putting the onus of the same on the Central Government.

Reacting to a letter written by the Punjab Chief Minister to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on this issue, the SAD president said, “it is clear that the Punjab Congress want to do a double whammy on Punjab farmers. They were tricked into believing that the Congress government will waive their loans. Now after deceiving and betraying the trust of farmers, CM Channi is again trying to trick farmers into believing that their loans will be waived in conjunction with the Central Government”.

Sukhbir Singh Badal said “CM Channi’s letter is not worth the paper it is printed upon. It is a matter of record that the complete farm loan waiver was promised by the Congress party and not the Central Government. The farm loan waiver formed a part of the election manifesto of the Congress in Punjab and it is its government which is honour bound to fulfill it and not the Centre."

Asking the Punjab Chief Minister not to run away from fulfilling the solemn promise made to the farmers of Punjab, Sukhbir Singh Badal said the former had admitted in the letter that the Congress party had failed abysmally to implement its complete farm loan waiver promise. "CM Channi has also admitted that farmers are being harassed and that recoveries are being made from them,” the SAD president alleged.
