Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh said he was willing to be dismissed or would resign if the Centre felt his passing the Bills against the three central farm laws was an act of rebellion.

Capt Amarinder was talking to the media after the three-day Assembly session ended on Wednesday. “I have resigned earlier too and have no qualms in resigning again to defend the interests of Punjab’s farmers," he said.

The CM also defended his Cabinet colleague Sadhu Singh Dharamsot and reiterated his earlier stand regarding the post-matric scholarship scam, claiming the minister was not involved in any wrongdoing. “There is no question of seeking his resignation,” he said.
