He stated SAD is a “pro-farmers party” and they’ll “struggle” for his or her stand.
“We will go to Punjab now, where party leaders and workers will hold a meeting. Since Shiromani Akali Dal is a party of farmers, we will struggle. There can be no talks with the Centre till the bills are taken back,” Mr Badal informed reporters.
SAD chief Manjinder Singh Sirsa, who met Mr Badal, lauded him over the get together”s stand on agriculture payments.
“We congratulate Sukhbir Singh Badal and Harsimrat Kaur Badal for standing with farmers against the centre over the bills,” Mr Sirsa stated.
The Lok Sabha has handed three payments associated to reforms in agriculture advertising. The payments search to provide farmers extra freedom to promote their produce.

SAD is a constituent of ruling NDA on the Centre.
