SAD-BJP to hold thanksgiving rally for PM Modi on July 11 at Malout:Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president Sukhbir Singh Badal today announced the party would hold a thanksgiving rally on July 11 to mark the unprecedented historic increase in minimum support price (msp) of Kharif crops which would be presided over by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The SAD president, who presided over a meeting of party legislators, party candidates and district presidents at the head office here, said the rally, which would be held at Malout, would be attended by farmers of Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan.
Mr Badal said the party rank and file as well as the farmers of Punjab were waiting anxiously to give a rousing welcome to the Prime Minister for his bold and decisive step to implement the Swaminathan Commission report which called for 50 per cent profit on input cost. He said the rally, which was being jointly hosted by the BJP, would also witness attendance of thousands of farmers from the two neighbouring States. “We are confident this will be a historic occasion on which the entire farming community will come together on one platform to thank Narendra Modi ji for the largesse extended to the farming community”, he added.
