Punjab has convened a particular meeting session on November 8 to oppose Centre’s notification extending the BSF jurisdiction apart from repealing the “three black farm legal guidelines”
Punjab chief minister Charanjit Singh Channi on Saturday spoke to farm union chief Balbir Singh Rajewal to hunt ideas on what needs to be included within the state authorities’s proposal to scrap the Centre’s contentious agriculture legal guidelines within the upcoming meeting session.
A particular meeting session has been convened on November 8 to oppose Centre’s notification extending the BSF jurisdiction apart from “repealing the three black farm legal guidelines”.
Channi shared a video of his dialog with Rajewal on Twitter. He could be heard telling the farm chief to share tips on behalf of the Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM) to cross them within the Vidhan Sabha. SKM is a coalition of over 40 farmers’ unions to coordinate the agitation in opposition to the three central legislations.
“The federal government will cross suggestions of the SKM in toto,” mentioned Channi, claiming that he had urged to scrap the payments within the Vidhan Sabha throughout the earlier Congress regime (led by Captain Amarinder Singh) as properly.
“I had sought to reject the three payments however the authorities officers threatened the dispensation that if Punjab opposes the payments, the Centre would possibly impose President’s rule within the state. However I’m not bothered about my authorities on this concern,” he mentioned.
Cease deceptive farmers: Capt
Reacting to Channi’s claims, Captain instructed him to cease deceptive farmers on the difficulty.
“Even my authorities did all this. We spoke to farm leaders on these legal guidelines and handed our personal legislations within the meeting too. Nevertheless, the governor is sitting on them and he’ll sit on any new legislation too. Please, don’t mislead the farmers with false guarantees,” mentioned the previous chief minister on Twitter.
