Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Friday said both the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) are ‘a bunch of hypocrites’ whose ‘double standards’ on the farm laws had exposed their lack of commitment to the farmers.

“AAP and SAD MLAs never say what they mean, and vice versa,” remarked the Punjab Chief Minister after the launch of the second phase of Punjab Smart Connect Scheme in Mohali near Chandigarh.

When his government passed Bills in the Vidhan Sabha to negate the Centre’s farm laws, both AAP and SAD MLAs extended support, but then both the parties changed their tune to suit their political interests, said Capt Amarinder Singh. “And now, in a bid to exploit the farmers’ agitation, they have again done a U-turn on the issue and are projecting themselves as the messiahs of the farmers, whose interests both parties had been instrumental in pawning off to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP),” he quipped.

The Chief Minister pointed out that while the SAD was party to the introduction of the farm ordinances in the first place, the AAP government in Delhi had been quick to implement one of the farm laws.

Taking a dig at Kejriwal’s ‘theatrics’ in the Delhi Assembly, the Punjab CM said the AAP leader had given approval to the ‘black’ farm laws by notifying one of them in the national Capital last month and was now indulging in petty politics over the matter by tearing copies of the central laws.


“This shows Kejriwal and AAP have a different face for the people, with totally contrarian intentions hidden inside,” he said, slamming the party over its ‘anti-farmer double-faced actions’, and ridiculed Arvind Kejriwal as a ‘big fraud’.
