Shiromani Akali Dal president Sukhbir Singh Badal on Sunday described as “sad, disappointing and extremely unfortunate” the Presidential assent granted to three Bills regarding farmers’ produce and to the Jammu and Kashmir Bill, excluding Punjabi as official language of that state.

In a statement here, Badal said it was really a “dark day for the country” that the honourable President has refused to act as the nation’s conscience. “We were very hopeful that the honourable President would return these Bills to the Parliament for reconsideration as demanded by SAD and alter by some other opposition parties too.”

Badal said his party will chalk out the next course of action after due deliberations.
