Punjab Congress Party Members Burn Badals Effigy


Punjab Congress president Amarinder Singh on Thursday accused the Badal government of pushing the debt-ridden farmers in the state to commit suicide through its “anti-farmer policies”. Demanding an explanation from the SAD government for its ‘failure’ to prevent farmers’ suicides in the state, Amarinder said Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal and Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal are following a “clear policy of discrimination” against the farmers whose interests had been completely “relegated to the background”.
