Farm legal guidelines will likely be repealed. Does that change issues for you?
We believed in it from the very first day and actually we have been the primary ones to maneuver it within the meeting. I assumed it was not good for my state.

Farmers are objecting due to the impact it will have on the longer term era.
However the farmers are nonetheless adamant. They need MSP (Minimal Help Value) to get a authorized assure. Is that this an affordable demand?
MSP is crucial. Each worth is said to the price of inputs. If the price of inputs goes up, then who’s affected? It impacts the farmers. MSP should be primarily based on the annual inflation.
Ought to they (farmers) return residence?
They need to. I informed them on Gurupurab, to return residence. Get pleasure from yourselves. The PM has assured (them).
If you had introduced your tie-up with the BJP, farm legal guidelines have been there. Many within the Congress referred to as you a traitor.
The Congress doesn’t know what it says. I do know who mentioned this. The factor is, this was for my farmers and I’ve finished it for them. What about (Ashok) Gehlot and (Bhupesh) Baghel? Don’t they contact the PM after they want one thing?
However have you ever not been all the time attacking the BJP whenever you have been in Congress?
So what? Immediately, I’ll assault the Congress as a result of they’re in opposition.
Punjab meeting elections goes to be a do or die battle. Are you anxious? Will it’s important to show your self as soon as once more?
By no means. I’ll win. I don’t must show myself to anybody. Everybody in Punjab is aware of what I’m doing for them. I’m not a type of who retains oneself to oneself.
Your exit from the Congress and the infighting throughout the occasion has given hope to Aam Aadmi Celebration (AAP).
The Congress doesn’t like a towering CM. AAP did badly final time and this time is worse. Congress will likely be completed and so will Akalis. I’ll win. Don’t know what number of of Congress ministers will even win. We now have an excellent likelihood.
If you see an advocate normal being eliminated, what do it’s important to say?
That’s not what worries me. What are we doing to the Structure? You have got people who find themselves not from Punjab, sitting and taking selections like Harish Choudhary or Krishna Allavaru. How can the state run like this?
What about Rajasthan? The cupboard reshuffle there was determined by the Congress central management.
Take it from me. Gehlot will likely be subsequent. He will likely be axed. He will likely be out. I hated the again stabbing they did (to me).
Will you go together with Akalis? What if the BJP asks you to?
No query of going with Akalis. I’ve been with them however I can’t work with them. Neither can BJP, I do know this. Akalis have additionally behaved badly and BJP doesn’t belief them.
Would you undertaking your self because the CM?
No, this isn’t the time for this. I can not touch upon whether or not I would be the CM. We’re three events — BJP, me and Akali factions. It must be a mixed choice.
What concerning the marketing campaign?
It will likely be straightforward for me to assault the Congress. I’d need the PM to marketing campaign for me and I’ll marketing campaign for the BJP in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand the place there are Sikhs.
