He said his party will also look into the interests and rights of the farmers who've been struggling for over a year now. He told he would not rest until he can secure the future of his people and his state. He also shared a tweet that said "Punjab needs political stability and protection from internal and external threats. I promise my people that I will do what it takes to ensure peace and security, which is today at stake"

The former Chief Minister also said he is hopeful of a seat-sharing arrangement with the BJP for next year's Assembly elections in the state, if the farmers' issues are resolved in their interest.
