Chandigarh:Expressing dissatisfaction over Punjab Governor V P Singh Badnore address in Vidhan Sabha on Tuesday, Aam Aadmi Party said that the government has failed to describe their plans and policies to address the matter related to public concerns.
Leader of opposition in Vidhan Sabha, Advocate H S Phoolka said that the plan to tackle important issues mentioned in election manifesto of Congress party was missing.
Phoolka further said that before elections Congress promised to wave off farmer’s loan and passing a law in this regard but no plan has been given in this regard in today’s address.
He said that many farmers had stopped paying their loans after the assurance from Congress but now as the banks and other private firms have started harassing the farmers by imposing penal interest on loans, the government has turned a blind eye to the matter.
The tractors and other farm related equipments are being impounded by banks. He added ‘Gunda Tax’ illegally imposed by Akali leaders is still in place and now Congress leaders have started collecting it. He also showed displeasure over no mention of duration of electricity to be provided to the farmers for the purpose of irrigation.
“We were expecting that a time bound inquiry will be marked in Sri Guru Granth Sahib desecration issues happened in Punjab, but the government failed to do so. Even Justice Zora Singh commission in its report mentioned that many high profile political leaders were involved in these cases but the government failed to address this issue of high significance.” said Phoolka.
AAP leader Sukhpal Singh Khaira said that the friendly ties between Congress and Akali Dal leaders have been exposed as government made no announcement regarding marking inquiry into illegal transport, cable, liquor and sand business of Akali leaders.
“SAD-BJP looted the state for 10 years and the common people of Punjab suffered because of atrocities of Akali leaders but to the surprise of all, Amarinder don’t want to take any action against them.” Khaira said.
