‘Not afraid to quit’: Punjab CM moves bills to counter Centre’s farm laws

The Punjab Assembly on Tuesday unanimously passed four bills and adopted a resolution against the Centre’s farm laws.

The Bills were passed after an over five-hour discussion, in which BJP MLAs did not take part.

The BJP has two legislators in the assembly.

The Opposition SAD, AAP, and Lok Insaaf MLAs backed the legislations.

The state government's legislative counter provides for imprisonment of not less than three years and a fine for sale or purchase of wheat or paddy under a farming agreement below the minimum support price.

The provisions exempt farmers from the attachment of land up to 2.5 acres and provide for the prevention of hoarding and black marketing of agricultural produce.

BJP's Rameshwar Sharma urges public to call Idgah Hills as 'Guru Nanak Tekri'

Protem speaker of Madhya Pradesh Assembly and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Rameshwar Sharma suggested Idgah Hills (in Bhopal) to be rename as 'Guru Nanak Tekri'. He said, "Idgah Hills (in Bhopal) should be known as 'Guru Nanak Tekri' because Guru Nanak Dev visited the place 500 years ago when there was no idgah there. I appeal to people to call it 'Guru Nanak Tekri'. I think this is not a wrong demand. Hoshangabad should be called as Narmadapuram. Hoshang Shah was a looter. He attacked the city and destroyed its temples. That is why we have called it Narmadapuram and the government has created Narmadapuram division. Similarly, those who call Prayagraj as Allahabad, it is their problem. We will call it Prayagraj only."
