Punjab BJP gen secy quits, Hry neta too resigns over farm laws | India News

CHANDIGARH: The resignation of Punjab BJP general secretary and a former Haryana BJP member, who had quit the party recently, joining INLD on Saturday have jolted the saffron party. Both resigned in protest against the agri-marketing laws passed by the Centre recently.
In his resignation letter to Punjab BJP president Ashwani Sharma, state BJP general secretary Malvinder Singh Kang said he has been requesting both state and central leadership of the party to redress the grievances of the protesting farmers, but no positive steps have been taken.
“As general secretary of the state BJP and as a member of the core group of the party, I raised my voice in support of the protesting farmers, arhtiyas, small traders and labourers at the party platform. While supporting the farmers’ agitation, I resign from the post of state general secretary, member of the core group and from the primary membership of the party,” reads Kang’s letter.
Last week, more than four dozen BJP leaders from different regions of Punjab had joined SAD. In Haryana, former BJP leader Shyam Singh Rana joined the INLD on Saturday.
