Prime Minister Narendra Modi in an official announcement, declared that the government has decided to repeal the three farm laws which had been at the center of protests by farmers for the past year.
Reiterating his government’s commitment to bring all the culprits involved in the sacrilege cases of the holy scripture Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji to book, CM Channi said that the ongoing investigations in this regard would be brought to the logical end
Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi said he always implored Union Government to roll back 'black' agri farm laws.
The deputy Chief Minister Sukhjinder Randhawa stated that the law and order situation in Punjab was totally under control and there was no need to extend the jurisdiction of BSF.
Former Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal wrote to PM Narendra Modi about a land swap proposal between India and Pakistan for the merger of the holy shrine at Kartarpur Sahib with India in exchange for a suitable chunk of land elsewhere.
The SAD supremo Sukhbir Badal warned the Congress government and Punjab’s Director General of Police with legal action if false witnesses were arranged to frame the Badals.
According to Sunil Jakhar, the former Punjab Congress chief, the ongoing internal conflict is definitely not helping the Congress party rather it is helping the opposition parties.
The party would be contesting the election in coalition with the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP). As per the seat-sharing arrangement, Mayawati-led BSP would be allotted 20 seats, the rest would be contested by SAD.

The cricketer turned politician Navjot Singh Sidhu said his fight has been on ‘issues’ and a pro-Punjab agenda.
'The protest march today not only symbolises the farmers' dissent but will also be remembered as a historic event that struck at the root of tyranny. Let's unite to mark this day as the beginning of a renewed revolt to bring justice for farmers,' the SAD president tweeted.
SAD is the first party to declare candidates for the election that is likely to be held in February, 2022.
Speaking to Outlook, Naresh Gujral said that the meeting, which was attended by many veteran leaders, was reminiscent of the Opposition meet in 1980’, hosted by his father and former Prime Minister Inder Kumar Gujral at his house.
Punjab CM Amarinder Singh attacked SAD chief Sukhbir Singh Badal for earlier supporting one of the Centre’s farm bills which later became law.
AAP leader Harpal Singh Cheema also said that his party will contest the upcoming Punjab Assembly elections on its own.
SAD has also promised to provide free education to children and grandchildren of farmers, who lost their lives while protesting the Centre’s new agriculture laws.
Sidhu also unleashed a veiled attack on Chief Minister Amarinder Singh saying there would be no need for him to go for power cuts or to regulate the office timings if the state acts 'in the right direction'.
