Arvind Kejriwal tells Amarinder Singh: States cannot change Centre’s law

The war between the Aam Aadmi Party and the Punjab government has started over the new farm laws passed by the Punjab Assembly on Tuesday.  Aam Aadmi Party national convenor and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday said that the state cannot change the Centre’s law. Arvind Kejriwal told Captain Amarinder Singh that passing of new laws by Punjab government was only a scripted drama.

Referring to Amarinder Singh, Arvind Kejriwal asked in his tweet how could a state amend Centre’s law? Calling them fake, Kejriwal said the people of Punjab have been fooled by their government.

Expressing his shock on the double standards of the Shiromani Akali Dal and Aam Aadmi Party over the three farm laws, Singh said both opposition parties had backed the new laws in the Assembly and then criticised them. The farmers did not say anything against farm laws but opposition criticised the legislations. These parties are not serious about the future of farmers.  

Punjab, emerged as the epicentre of protests against the Centre’s farm laws, rejected the three controversial farm laws passed by the Centre last month amid unprecedented chaos in Parliament. The Assembly first moved a resolution against the Centre’s laws, and unanimously cleared four bills designed to counter those passed by Parliament. Later, Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar said the government will deliberate on the resolution passed by the Punjab Assembly.
