New Delhi: A day after Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur resigned from the Cabinet over the passing of controversial farm sector reform Bill, pressure mounted from the Opposition on the Jannayak Janata Party leader Dushyant Chautala to quit. Badal was the lone Shiromani Akali Dal minister in the Cabinet.
At present, JJP leads a coalition government along with BJP in Haryana.
Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala said in a tweet, “Dushyant ji, following Harsimrat Kaur Badal you should have resigned at least from the Dy CM post. You are more attached to your chair than farmers…’
Harsimrat Kaur Badal quit after the Lok Sabha passed the Farmers Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Bill and the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Bill. The Bills allow farmers to sell their produce beyond APMC limits and paves way for contract farming.
