As part of the ongoing campaign in support of Agricultural community during wheat procurement “Saadi Mehnat Saada Haq”, Aam Aadmi Party Kisan and Labour Wing General Secretary and Spokesperson Mr. Ahbaab Singh Grewal toured all the grain markets in the Jagraon, Gill and Dakha areas of Ludhiana District and found the facilities there sorely lacking. Expressing his total disappointment with what he discovered, Mr Ahbaab Singh Grewal said that “Despite tall claims of Badal Govt. the farmers and labourers are being highly harassed. While the Govt claims to have provided every convenience to the farmers and labourers, the fact is that it has not even been able to provide basic things like gunny bags(bardaana) and the farmers and labourers have to either procure their own or wait till some already dilapidated ones become free. It was reported to the Inspectors on duty but no action has been taken so far” Mr. Grewal also lamented that not a single payment has been made to the farmers despite it being reported that RBI has released more than Rs. 17000 crores to the Punjab Government for wheat procurement. Mr Grewal further said that neither the farmers nor the labourers have been provided basic ameneties like clean drinking water, a place to rest or security for their produce. Mr. Ahbaab Singh Grewal appreciated the teams of party volunteers who are running helpdesks in these mandis for the last 15 days despite the scorching heat. He was accompanied by Ludhiana Zone Kisan Wing Incharge Gurjit Gill, Labour Wing Incharge Rajinderpal Kaur, Sector Coordinator Varinder Jassian and Jiwan Sangowal among others.
