Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president Sukhbir Singh Badal on Wednesday declared that his party “will move a resolution in Punjab Vidhan Sabha to ensure that the House directs the Punjab cabinet to use the state machinery, including the civil and police machinery, to physically block the implementation of the centre’s farm laws on agriculture and stop the BSF from usurping the constitutional authority of the Punjab Police.”

“We want a directive from the House, not an ineffective resolution. We will seek a House directive also to categorically put the onus for implementation of its decision on CM Charanjit Singh Channi,” declared Sukhbir Singh Badal.

He also said that the manner in which Captain Amarinder Singh justified the central move to increase the jurisdiction of the BSF, proved that the Punjab Congress had colluded with the centre to make this move possible.

“Such moves cannot take place in a matter of days. It is obvious that it was discussed earlier under Capt Amarinder Singh’s government. Present chief minister Charanjit Channi was part of the cabinet and also privy to the move. He should not shed crocodile tears on this issue now,” he said.

The Shiromani Akali Dal president further asked the Chief Minister to share with Punjabis the details of how many crores of people’s hard-earned money is burnt away every day through government advertisements to market his fake image of ‘simplicity and poverty.’

“Punjabis have never seen one man’s poverty and simplicity costing the people so heavy. The money of the poor and the unemployed are being cruelly wasted on projecting a rich man as poor,” said Badal, adding that he cannot recall another example of such hypocrisy in human history.

Dismissing CM Channi’s ‘loud claims on investments in Punjab’, Mr Badal challenged the Chief Minister to put on the official website the detail of even a single crores’ or penny’s worth of investment actually made in Punjab as a result of his investor’s ‘jamboorie’.
