Won’t be part of CM’s delegation to Prez: AAP

Chandigarh, October 31

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) today announced that they won't be part of the delegation to be led by Chief Minister Amarinder Singh to meet the President over the farm laws, describing it as a "mere political drama".

Leader of Opposition Harpal Singh Cheema said the three farm Bills passed by the state government in the specially convened Vidhan Sabha on October 20 by rushing amendments to negate the controversial laws would be meaningless, claiming these would not help protect the interests of the farmers.

He said there was no point in meeting the President as the Governor had yet not signed the proposed Bills. He said instead of meeting the President, if the CM led a delegation to the Prime Minister, AAP would have agreed. — TNS


PPCC president Sunil Jakhar

It's afterthought

  • Hours after the AAP and SAD refused to be part of the delegation, which is scheduled to meet the President on November 5, PPCC president Sunil Jakhar termed the move an afterthought, saying they had agreed to be part of it when all MLAs had gone to meet the Governor
  • Jakhar accused both parties of indulging in politics on the issue of farm Bills. He said the BJP was successful in tearing the unity among Punjab's political parties. The Opposition has termed the move to meet the President over the Bills a mere formality
