TMC government supports Shiromani Akali Dal

News Desk: The All India Trinamool Congress led West Bengal government stepped forward to help the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD), which quitted the NDA over the three farm bills, to fight the ‘anti-agricultural’ laws of the Central government.

The national spokesperson and MP of the TMC government Derek O’Brien tweeted “We support Sukhbir Singh Badal and Akali Dal”s stand with the farmers. Fighting for farmers is part of Trinamool DNA. In 2006, Mamata Banerjee risked her life on a historic 26 day fast for farmers’ rights. We oppose #FarmBills2020 as they endanger States’ role, MSP, PDS and procurement”

In response to O’Brien’s tweet, on micro-blogging website Badal said “Derek – your stand against the #AgricultureBills in parliament is well known. Appreciate your support”
