BATHINDA: Farmer leader Bhupinder Singh Mann has recused himself from the Supreme Court appointed committee to talk to farmers on the three farm laws and make recommendations.
Mann who heads the Bhartiya Kisan Union took to Twitter to make the announcement.
Bhupinder Singh was one of the four members nominated by Supreme Court in the committee. The farm unions though had rejected the formation of the committee.
In a statement Mann said, "While I am thankful to Supreme Court for nominating me in 4 members committee to start dialogue with kisan unions on three laws brought by central government."
"As a farmer myself and a union leader, in view of the prevailing sentiments and apprehensions among various farm unions and the public in general, I am ready to sacrifice any position offered or given to me so as to not compromise the interests of the farmers of the country. I am recusing myself from the committee but I will always stand by my farmers and Punjab," the statement added.
A lot of politics too started over the formation of committee in Punjab. Shiromani Akali Dal president Sukhbir Singh Badal on Wednesday raised objection and said that two members of the committee, Bhupinder Singh Mann and Ashok Gulati are close to Punjab chief minister Captain Amarinder Singh.
