The withdrawal of the award in support of farmers who are opposing the agricultural laws has started again. The first name is that of former Punjab Chief Minister and Shiromani Akali Dal leader Parkash Singh Badal. He has returned the Padma Vibhushan Award in 2015. Another name is Shiromani Akali Dal (Democratic) chief and Rajya Sabha MP Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa. He too has announced to return his Padma Bhushan Award.

According to reports, former Indian hockey team captain and Padmashree Pargat Singh, Padmashree Wrestler Kartar Singh, Arjuna Awardee hockey player Rajbir Kaur and basketball player Arjun Singh Cheema have also announced to return their awards.

Understand the meaning of politics of return of honor of SAD

1. Compensation of losses caused by separation from BJP

The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD), which practiced cult politics, had deep penetration among the farmers of Punjab. However, in the last election this mass base was seen to be breaking. In such a situation, the Akali Dal and Congress are playing all kinds of bets to help the farmers. This is also important for the Akali Dal because it will suffer losses in the urban vote bank after separating from the BJP, which will have to depend on rural areas to try to compensate. In such a situation, tug of war is going on in the Akali Dal and the Congress to become the advocate of the farmers.

2. Congress takes the lead in the peasant movement, hence the move to return the honor

Chief Minister of Punjab Congress Government Captain Amarinder Singh passed the resolution against the Centre’s law in the Assembly and supported the farmers. The peasant movement continued in Punjab for nearly two months. Captain managed to keep the movement peaceful in the state. There was no interruption in Punjab during the farmers’ journey to Delhi. When the police used force on the farmers in Haryana, the captain showed an aggressive attitude. The Captain is also seen leading the talks with the Central Government.

In the era of peasant movement, the discussion of SAD, its name did not emerge much. Now Prakash Singh Badal has bet on the return of honor so that the name of the party remains in the discussion. Also, let the farmers know that SAD is in their favor.

3. Even after breaking 22-year relationship with BJP, political gains were not being made

The Akali Dal left the ministerial post in the central government over the agricultural law. Also left a 22-year-old friendship with the BJP. But, in the current farmer movement, she was not able to take political mileage of all these. Amarinder was seen in the headlines associated with the peasant movement. According to political experts, in view of the current situation, the Akali Dal decided to make a big move and Prakash Singh Badal announced the return of the Padma Vibhushan award.

4. Trying to get SAD to credit the pressure on the Center
Prakash Singh Badal has had good relations with the BJP’s strong leaders in the Central Government. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has called him even to Nelson Mandela of India, because Badal spent nearly two decades in prison fighting in independent India. In such a situation, the withdrawal of the honor for taking credit for putting pressure on the central government is being considered this big bet of the Akali Dal.
