SAD quits NDA over farm Bills

The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) ended its alliance with the BJP over disagreement with the contentious new agriculture Bills.

Party president Sukhbir Singh Badal announced the end of the long-term alliance following a meeting of the core committee.

"Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) has decided to pull out of BJP-led NDA alliance because of the centre'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," said Shiromani Akali Dal.

Parkash Badal, Sukhdev Dhindsa return Padma awards in protest against farm laws

SAD leader and former Punjab CM Parkash Singh Badal returned his Padma Vibhushan award on Thursday. The five-time former CM returned his Padma award in protest against the new farm laws. SAD, one of the oldest constituents of NDA, had snapped ties with BJP in September 2020. SAD pulled out of the alliance to protest against the agriculture laws enacted by Centre. In a letter emailed to President, Badal listed his reasons for feeling 'hurt and betrayed'. He regretted that the union govt remains indifferent to sufferings of the farmers. Badal felt apologetic that the pleas of farmer friendly parties like SAD were mocked. Incidentally, SAD (Democratic) chief Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa also returned his Padma Bhushan. The Rajya Sabha MP was presented the Padma Bhushan award by President Kovind in March 2019. Dhindsa parted ways with SAD after political differences with chief Sukhbir Singh Badal.

Former Punjab CM Parkash Badal returns his Padma Vibhushan over farm protest

Former Punjab Chief Minister and Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leader Parkash Singh Badal on December 03 symbolically returned his Padma Vibhushan to protest against the new agricultural laws. Badal said he is returning his award to protest the "betrayal of farmers" by the government. Thousands of farmers from neighbouring states, mainly Punjab, have settled in and around the national capital as part of their 'Delhi Chalo' protest against the three new agricultural reforms which have been dubbed as "black laws" by the protesting farmers. The government has repeatedly conveyed that the three farm laws will help farmers in getting better price for their produce and usher economic growth in the agriculture sector.

Pakistan driving away their minorities by threat, coercion, conversion and killing: India at UNGA

During 75th Session of the United Nations General Assembly on 'Culture of Peace', India on December 03 exercised its "Right of Reply" and said that Pakistan driving away their minorities by threat, coercion, conversion and killing. "Pakistan has already violated the earlier resolution on Culture of Peace passed last year by this very assembly. Last month, Pakistan arbitrarily transferred the management of the Sikh holy shrine - Kartarpur Sahib Gurudwara, from Sikh Community body, to the administrative control of a non-Sikh body. If Pakistan changes its current culture of hatred against religions in India and stops its support of cross-border terrorism against our people, we can attempt a genuine culture of peace in South Asia and beyond, till then we will only be mute witness to Pakistan driving away their minorities by threat, coercion, conversion and killing. Even people of the same religion are not spared due to encouragement given to sectarian killing," said Sharma at 75th Session of UNGA.
