Amritsar: Aam Aadmi Party has appealed to the farmers and labourers of Punjab to avoid taking extreme steps like committing suicide. The black chapter of Punjab agriculture will end with formation of AAP government in Punjab. In a joint press statement, Sangrur MP and Campaign committee Chairman, Bhagwant Mann and Chairman Manifesto Committee, Kanwar Sandhu expressed grief over the suicide of farm labourer Jagsir Singh of village Jeeda in Bathinda district. The leaders said that farmers of the state are committing suicide while government is in deep slumber. The farmers of Punjab who once played their vital role in bringing green revolution are taking extreme steps because of anti-farmers policies of government.
Mann termed Akali-BJP and Congress equally responsible for the present situation of agriculture in the state and country. He said that both Congress and Akali-BJP alliance made hollow promises of giving facilities to farmers but failed to implement Dr. Swaminathan committee recommendations. Chief Minister Badal has played a negative role in improving the lives of farmers.DP
