Punjab : Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) decided to quit from BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) as Modi government is being stubborn in the matter of Farm Bills. The decision was taken in the party meeting presided by Sukhbir Singh Badal on Saturday.
BJP is losing its oldest ally through Akali Dal’s decision. The party accused that the Narendra Modi government is stubborn and continuously refusing to hear farmers’ plea. The govt is having “continued insensitivity to Punjabi and Sikh issues” said Akali Dal.
As a protest, senior Akali Dal MP and Union minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal resigned from the Modi government on September 17, on the day in which Lok Sabha passed the farm bills.
Along with several protests against the Bills by farmers and politicians across the country, the exit of Akali Dal from NDA with be a new stress to the central government.
