The government has turned away from its words – Badal

He further wrote, ‘After this, I appealed to the farmers to trust the government’s words, but I was surprised when the government turned back on its own. This was the most painful moment of my political life. I have started thinking how the government has become so ruthless. ‘
Farmers have to take to the streets for the right – Badal
Badal further wrote, ‘I am writing about 70 percent of the country’s population who are farmers. They have been called Annadata for the last 70 years. Farmers made India a country that exports food grains today instead of taking food grains from other countries, but farmers have to take to the streets today for their rights.
He wrote that the farmer is surrounded by crisis today.
Sukhdev Dhindsa will also return the honor
Badal further wrote in his letter, ‘I am so poor that I have nothing else to sacrifice for the farmers, whoever I am is because of the farmers. In such a situation, if there is insult to the farmers, then there is no use of having any kind of respect.
According to media reports, Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa, leader of Akali Dal after Prakash Singh Badal, will also return his Padma Bhushan award.
