SunstarTV Bureau: Punjab Chief Minister, Captain Amarinder Singh slams Delhi counterpart, Arvind Kejriwal for announcing a day-long fast.
In response to the call by farmers, Kejriwal announced that he would observe a day-long hunger strike amid an intensified strike against the three contentious laws, on December 13, which is seen as a threat by Captain Amarinder Singh.
Captain said the Kejriwal government had “backstabbed” the farmers by “shamelessly” notifying one of the farm laws on November 23.
Captain also denied the allegations of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), MP Bhagwant Mann’s statement on dealing with the Adani group. He said, “The Punjab government has neither signed any agreement with the Adani Power nor is it aware of the private players bidding for power purchase in the state.”
Punjab CM, added, “And now, they are indulging in theatrics by announcing that they would be sitting on a fast in support of the farmers’ hunger strike on Monday. Do you have no shame? At a time when our farmers are braving the winter cold on the roads outside your city and many of them are dying fighting for their rights, all you can think of is how to make the most of the opportunity to promote your political interests. Instead of doing anything constructive to help the protesting farmers, who are sitting outside your city for the past 17 days to seek justice, you and your party are busy playing politics.”
