The Shiromani Akali Dal on Thursday said Bhupinder Singh Mann ought to not have actually recused himself from the SC-appointed committee, stating the BKU leader must have taken a stand for Punjab.
Bhartiya Kisan Union national president Bhupinder Singh Mann on Thursday stated he is recusing himself from the four-member committee appointed by the Supreme Court to solve the deadlock in between farmers and the Centre over the brand-new agri-marketing laws.
” Mann must have taken a stand for Punjab and Punjabiyat in the four-member committee formed by the Supreme Court to initiate a discussion with farm organizations rather of compromising their case by recusing himself from the committee,” stated SAD leader Maheshinder Singh Grewal in a statement here.
Grewal rued Maan’s withdrawal from the panel saying it is currently heavily slanted in favour of the Centre.
In a statement, he said, “Mann’s letter recusing himself from the committee itself is a proof that he was under intense pressure from the Punjab federal government in addition to the Centre to come out with a decision in favour of the farm laws. This is why the Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) leader said he was recusing himself from the committee to guarantee he did not jeopardize the interests of Punjab.”
” It is clear that Mann’s conscience was puncturing him and he did not want to betray his Punjabi brethren in any way. However, instead of doing this, he needs to have fought against this conspiracy to forcibly implement an anti-people legislation through a carefully picked professional panel,” he said.
