Capt Amarinder to lead delegation of non-political agriculture experts to meet shah on farmers’ stir

Former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh will soon lead a non-political delegation of agricultural experts to meet the Union Home Minister to discuss possible solutions to the ongoing farmers’ agitation.

Captain Amarinder had earlier said any seat arrangement he made with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) would be subject to a resolution of the farmers’ issue in their interest.

Disclosing this here on Wednesday, Captain Amarinder said he had been discussing various options with Home Minister Amit Shah, whom he will be meeting in Delhi again on Thursday, and others.

“I think I can help in finding a solution as I have been the Chief Minister of Punjab and am also an agriculturist,” Captain Amarinder told a press conference.

While there could be no pre-decided formula for resolution of the farmers’ stir, something will emerge during the talks as both sides (Central Government and Farmers) want a resolution to the crisis triggered by the Farm Laws, he said.

Captain Amarinder said he was not an alarmist but his 10 years of experience in the Army and 9.5 years as home minister of the state told him that “something is going to happen.” “Yet a home minister who has been in his chair for one month claims to know more than me!” he quipped, taking a dig at Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa.

“Sleeper cells of Pak ISI and Khalistani forces are creating trouble, technology is becoming more advance. The capacity and range of drones is increasing, first they came in just 5-6 kms from the border, now they reach 31 kms,” he pointed out. “We have to be very careful of the clandestine war from across the borders,” he added.

Making it clear that he had not met any farmer leaders, the former Chief Minister said he had deliberately not interfered in the matter as the farmers did not want politicians involved.  The farmer leaders had four inconclusive meetings with the Centre but back channel talks have been going on, he added.
