Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president Sukhbir Singh Badal on Wednesday lashed out at AAP leader and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for “stabbing the beleaguered farmers in the back with treacherous implementation of the anti-farmer Acts brought by the BJP government at the Centre”.
“This is not just political dishonesty in the extreme but also an inhuman betrayal of the simple hearted and trusting farmers,” Badal said in a statement here.
The SAD chief said that he and the farmers were shocked to learn that Kejriwal had already implemented the Centre’s “anti-farmer Acts” and even issued a gazette notification on November 23.
“Even a crocodile would have a thing or two to learn from Kejriwal about how to shed fake tears. In fact, the idiom about crocodile tears will have to be changed now to ‘Kejriwal tears’,” he said.
Stating that the latest betrayal of Kejriwal exposed him as well as the AAP, Badal said the Delhi Chief Minister should withdraw the gazette notification immediately.
“Kejriwal should also announce that the Delhi Government will not implement the three agri laws and will ensure assured government marketing at minimum support price,” he added.
