Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) chief Sukhbir Singh Badal on Tuesday lashed out at the BJP, which had recently left the NDA government over a new agricultural law. Badal accused the BJP of being a “real gang piece” and accused the party of inciting Hindus against Sikhs in Punjab.
Sukhbir Singh Badal asked his old friend BJP to give up its ‘arrogant habit’ in agricultural law and accept the views of farmers. Badal said that those who speak in favor of the central government are called ‘patriots’ and those who speak against the government are called gang members.
Akali Dal chief Badal tweeted, “BJP is the real ‘peacemill gang’ of the country.” It has shattered the unity of the country, fearlessly inciting Hindus against Muslims and now they have incited Hindus against Sikhs in Punjab. She is pushing patriotic Punjab towards communal fire.
The BJP is real #TukdeTukdeGang In the country. It has shattered national unity, shamelessly inciting Hindus against Muslims and now trying to stop peace-loving Punjabi Hindus from protesting against their Sikh brethren. #Farmers. They are throwing patriotic Punjab into communal fire. pic.twitter.com/7adwVmoDgj

The Shiromani Akali Dal had quit the NDA a few months ago on the issue of a new agricultural law. Union Minister Hardimarat Singh Badal also resigned from the Council of Ministers. Harsimrat Kaur Badal was the only Akali Dal representative in the Modi government and was also an old ally of the BJP.
It is noteworthy that many farmers’ organizations have been protesting against the central agricultural law in many places near Delhi for the past three weeks. They are demanding the repeal of these laws. The interaction of the farmers’ organizations with the government at various stages was in vain. The government had proposed several amendments to the agricultural law, which the farmers refused to accept.
