Chandigarh: Akali stalwart and former Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal on Thursday returned his Padma Vibhushan award in protest against the Centre’s farm laws.

“I am who I am because of the people, especially the common farmer. Today when he has lost more than his honour, I see no point in holding on to the Padma Vibhushan honour,” the Shiromani Akali Dal leader said.
