Punjab CM Capt Amarinder Singh today said Punjab would prove to be BJP’s nemesis as the farm laws would sound the “death knell” for the party.
“The BJP is set to lose not just these civic polls but also the 2022 Punjab Assembly election. Its very existence will be wiped out from our soil,” said the Chief Minister, while reacting to the saffron party leadership’s assertion it would spring a surprise in the Assembly polls.
The BJP should start preparing for political oblivion, said the CM, adding its fate was now sealed, not just in Punjab but also at the Centre. “The farm laws will sound the death knell for the party. For nearly seven years, they have trampled over human rights, as well as the dignity and aspirations of Indians, and now it is the people’s turn,” he said.
“What you see on the roads, and which you allege to be the Congress handiwork, is the spontaneous anger triggered by your anti-farmer attitude,” he said, rejecting Punjab BJP’s claims of Congress workers, not farmers, targeting its campaign trail for the upcoming civic body elections.
