Returning his Padma Vibhushan, former Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal wrote, ‘I am so poor that I have nothing else to sacrifice for the farmers, whatever I am because of the farmers. In such a situation, if farmers are being insulted, then there is no use of having any kind of respect. Badal further wrote that the kind of deception that has been done to farmers has hurt them a lot. The way the farmers’ movement is being presented from the wrong perspective is painful.

It is worth mentioning that earlier the Badal family has strongly opposed the agricultural laws. Harsimrat Kaur Badal resigned as Union Minister. The new laws of the Center were described as a big fraud with the farmers. Not only this, Sukhbir Badal, while announcing the Akali Dal’s separation from the NDA, had spoken about fighting alone in the Punjab elections.

Explain that the Akali Dal is continuously protesting against the agricultural laws in Punjab. However, Captain Amarinder Singh had attacked the Akali Dal and alleged that these laws were prepared when the Akali Dal was involved in the central government, then why did they not oppose the laws then.

For the last two months, the farmers of Punjab were protesting in the state in protest against the agricultural laws, but on 26 November thousands of farmers traveled from Punjab to Delhi. Since then, farmers from other states including Punjab have been demonstrating in the areas of Delhi-NCR. The police has not allowed farmers to enter Delhi. In such a situation, farmers are standing on the borders of Delhi …

Despite all the efforts of the central government, the farmers are not ready to give any agreement about their demands. There have been four rounds of discussion between the government and the farmers so far, but all these negotiations have been inconclusive … The farmers say that the government will have to withdraw all the three laws, guarantee the MSP. The minister of the government and PM Modi himself is assuring the farmers that their MSP will continue. PM Modi, while addressing the public meeting on the occasion of Devdeepavali in Varanasi, said that farmers have been given new options in the agrarian reform laws, nothing happened.
