Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Saturday lambasted the Akalis for raising a hue and cry over the farm loan waiver package and trying to project themselves as messiahs of the farmers to promote their petty political interests, after pushing them into vicious debt traps with their lopsided policies. Dismissing as senseless their obnoxious demand for a Rs 90,000 crore farm loan waiver package after doing nothing for the farmers during their decade-long rule, the Chief Minister said the Akalis were trying desperately to pick at straws in a bid to find some issue to play to the public gallery and revive their political fortunes.
