Akali Dal leader Prem Singh says ‘Centre destroying federal structure’

Former Shiromani Akali Dal MP Prem Singh Chandumajra said the Centre’s actions indicate a move towards the ‘destruction of the federal structure’.

Shiromani Akali Dal MP Prem Singh Chandumajra said, “We have political differences with Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh. But we will never accept Central Government holding back the Rural Development Fund due for the State.”

Terming the stopping of Rural Development Fund allocation to Punjab as ‘unconstitutional’ he said, “Our party believes that we are moving towards a unitary system. These are the indicators of moving towards a Presidential form of government from the Parliament system.”
