Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal:
Visited grain market Tapa mandi (Barnala) & witnessed farmers being forced to sell their Moong crop to private players at rates between Rs 4,000 to Rs 5,000/quintal.
Govt is not honouring its commitment to pay the losses incurred by them in selling it below MSP ie Rs 7275/quintal.
Want to ask CM Bhagwant Mann what is the fault of the farmers who believing his announcement in Vidhan Sabha sowed Moong crop over lakhs of acres.
When the CM has now run away from implementing his assurance, many farmers have even ploughed their Moong fields in desperation.
