Stop suppressing the voice of farmers’ at Modi’s behest: AAP
Sangrur: The dictatorial edict being issued by the administration of Punjab chief minister Captain Amarinder Singh’s government with an aim of crushing the farmers’ movement was withdrawn after the issue was raised by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Punjab and the people. In a press statement issued by the party District incharge Sangrur Davinder Singh Badesha and youth leader Narinder Bharaj, it was stated that the administration of the Captain’s government had to back down from its decision following AAP’s opposition to it
The leaders said that Captain Amarinder Singh was similar to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, as he was also using petty maneuvers like the central government to suppress the farmers’ movement, so that PM Modi does not get angry. They said although the Captain government under a well-conceived conspiracy was issuing such orders but after seeing the public outrage, he transferred SDM Babandeep Singh, who had signed the official order. The SDM of Sangrur in a meeting dated December 2, with the traders and shopkeepers of palaces, tent houses and DJ (sound), had ordered that equipment and materials used in processions, rallies, protests, etc should not be provided without the approval of the district administration and failure to do so will result in legal action.
The leaders said that like the Captain government, dictatorial Modi government would one day have to also bow before the agitation of farmers against the black laws. They said that now the agitation was not only the agitation of Punjab farmers but also the agitation of the people of the country. Taking a dig at Captain Amarinder Singh, the leaders said that due to his own weaknesses, Capt should stop working at the behest of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to fail the ongoing farmers’ movement. They said that the people of Punjab had elected him as their Chief Minister, while he was fighting for his survival, but he had betrayed them. The party stated that Captain should not issue such dictatorial orders again which would make him bow down.
