The Bharatiya Janata Party and the NDA’s oldest ally, the Shiromani Akali Dal, have decided to part with the NDA over the new agrarian reform laws. But why has the Shiromani Akali Dal decided to break away from the NDA and the BJP? This is also a matter to be seen.
Let us tell you for the information that farmers are on the roads all over the country regarding the new agrarian reform law. And its greatest impact has been seen in Punjab Haryana. Apart from this, its impact has also been seen in eastern Uttar Pradesh.
The main vote bank of the Shiromani Akali Dal is the farmer. In such a situation, if she was not separated from the NDA now, she could have suffered a huge loss in the election. For the Shiromani Akali Dal, which won only 2 seats in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, there was no other way but to separate from the NDA. Earlier, Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal resigned from the NDA government. Then he said that we will try to convince the farmers. But now it seems that the matter is not being formed. And the Shiromani Akali Dal has decided to part with the Bharatiya Janata Party government.
Why Shiromani Akali Dal had to separate from NDA
Actually Shiromani Akali Dal has been a big party of Punjab. And had also been in power for 10 consecutive years. But after the defeat of the Congress in the assembly elections in the first assembly and after the defeat in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the Shiromani Akali Dal’s base was steadily decreasing. And the party was fighting for its survival. After this, the peasant movement increased its difficulties even more.
The Shiromani Akali Dal is a group of farmers. And this group is also the basis of vote bank for Shiromani Akali Dal. In such a situation, if the Shiromani Akali Dal was not separated from the NDA, then the fight for its existence would have started.
The Shiromani Akali Dal was not able to fully protest
However, Shiromani Akali Dal Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal resigned from the Union Cabinet. But they still remained NDA partners. In such a situation, she was not able to fully oppose the new agrarian reform laws. And whenever he used to go among the farmers, he was seen as an ally of NDA. To avoid this stampede, the Shiromani Akali Dal finally decided to part ways with the NDA.
The Shiromani Akali Dal understood one thing that if farmers were opposing agrarian reform laws, they would have to come together with the farmers in a complete manner. The Shiromani Akali Dal could see its future in darkness without farmers.
Important role of farmers in Punjab politics
Farmers have an important role in the politics of Punjab. That is why you would see that Assembly elections or Lok Sabha elections are made with big promises to farmers. In such a situation, when the farmers came on the streets with the new agrarian reform laws, the Shiromani Akali Dal had to come with them. However, the Shiromani Akali Dal worked as an ally of the central government when these laws were enacted. And in the Lok Sabha had expressed its support on the Agrarian Reform Act. But after the growing anger of the farmers, the Shiromani Akali Dal had to separate itself from these new agrarian reform laws. Although knowing that it is too late.
Exports are saying that the Congress party has managed to convince the farmers of Punjab that the Shiromani Akali Dal is an ally of the Bharatiya Janata Party. And they have supported new agrarian reform laws.
We do not want a certificate from Captain Amarinder Singh to be farmer friendly Shiromani Akali Dal
The Congress Party and Captain Amarinder Singh were constantly challenging the Shiromani Akali Dal to separate itself from the NDA. And Harsimrat Kaur Badal resigns. Harsimrat Kaur Badal resigned when pressure on Shiromani Akali Dal increased. After this, the Congress party said that he has resigned due to pressure from him. And now there is no use for it. In response, the Shiromani Akali Dal said that we do not need any certificate from Captain Amarinder Singh to be farmer friendly.
However, now it will be interesting to see how effective this step of Shiromani Akali Dal is. However, there is anger in Punjab about the Shiromani Akali Dal. In such a situation, how much Shiromani Akali Dal will be able to suppress this anger. It will be able to tell the time to come.
