SAD walks out of NDA alliance

sad-walks-out-of-nda-alliance

CHANDIGARH: Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) oldest ally Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) walked out of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) coalition in protest against the three farm bills and for insensitivity towards Punjabi language and Sikh issues.

Terming the bills anti-farmers and anti-Punjab, the core committee of the party decided unanimously to pull out of the BJP -led NDA alliance. The party held the center’s “stubborn” refusal to give statutory legislative guarantees to protect assured marketing of farmers crops on MSP and its continued insensitivity to Punjabi and Sikh issues like excluding Punjabi language as official language in Jammu and Kashmir the reasons for the decision.

The meeting was presided over by the SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal who said that SAD will continue to stand by its core principles of peace, communal harmony and guard the interest of Punjab, Punjabi in general and Sikhs and farmers in particular. He said that the decision has been taken in consultation with the people of Punjab especially party workers and farmers. Badal said that the bills on agricultural marketing brought by the BJP government are lethal and disastrous for the already beleaguered farmers.

He said the SAD was the oldest ally of the BJP, but the government did not listen to repeated pleas of honouring the sentiments of farmers.

The SAD leader said that the party opposed these bills in the parliament and voted against them and Harsimrat Kaur Badal, lone representative of the party in the union Cabinet, resigned.

While slamming BJP for not paying heed to repeated pleas of SAD not to force anti-farmers bills, Prof Prem Singh Chandumajra said that there is no point in continuing in alliance.

SAD had first forged an alliance with Bharatiya Jana Sangh, BJP’s predecessor, during state assembly elections in 1969. It later entered into coalition with BJP in 1997 during the state election. SAD joined BJP-led alliance at centre in 1998.

No morality involved, just a political compulsion: Amarinder on SAD walking out of NDA

no-morality-involved,-just-a-political-compulsion:-amarinder-on-sad-walking-out-of-nda

CHANDIGARH: Punjab chief minister Amarinder Singh has termed SAD’s decision to quit the NDA as nothing more than a desperate case of political compulsion for the Badals, who, he said, were effectively left with no other option after the BJP’s public criticism of SAD over farm Bills.

Referring to his earlier statement, in which he had said that the NDA would throw the Akalis out if the latter did not leave gracefully, Amarinder said there was no moral high ground involved in this decision of the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD). The Akalis had no choice, since the BJP had already made it clear that it held SAD responsible for failing to convince the farmers about the benefits of the agriculture bills.

SAD’s decision to quit NDA was just the culmination of their saga of lies and deception, which eventually led to their being cornered on the issue of the bills, Amarinder said, adding that Sukhbir Singh Badal was virtually caught between the devil and the deep sea after his initial unprincipled stand on the farm ordinances, followed by the sudden U-turn in the face of farmer protests.

Amarinder said with the BJP-led ruling coalition at the Centre exposing the SAD web of lies, fabrications and double-speak, the Akalis no choice but to leave the NDA. But far from helping them save face, the Akalis will now find themselves in a bigger political mess now, he added.

He said Sukhbir Badal, Harsimrat Badal and other SAD leaders should admit to their deceitful actions as part of the Union government and should beg the farmers for forgiveness.
