Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Tuesday met Governor V P Singh Badnore after the state assembly unanimously passed four Bills against the Centre’s farm laws and hoped that he will give his nod to the legislations.

The Congress party saying that the Punjab government's move to counter the centre's new farm laws has provided the BJP with an opportunity to correct its mistakes. Remember, last month, Congress President Sonia Gandhi had advised chief ministers of Congress ruled states to explore the possibility of passing laws under Article 254 to negate the centre's legislations.
