Big blow to NDA, Akali Dal exits alliance over farm bills

Sep 26, 2020 23:13 IST

The Shiromani Akali Dal on Saturday broke ties with the Bharatiya Janata Party, days after Harsimrat Kaur resigned from the Union cabinet over contentious farm bills. SAD President Sukhbir Singh Badal said, the party was not taken into confidence before passing the three agriculture bills, which directly affect farmers, labourers and local traders. He added, Akali Dal had been trying to attract Centre's attention to the farmers' issues and the impact of the Bills but their efforts went in vain.
