Khaira fires AAP Govt for failing to give MSP to Moong cultivators in Punjab

Chandigarh, Aug 2, 2022 (Yes Punjab News)
President of All India Kissan Congress and MLa Bholath Sukhpal Singh Khaira came down heavily on the AAP government for failing to provide MSP to the farmers growing pulses.

He said while the government has been talking about crop diversification so vociferously, but it has miserably failed to come to the support of farmers cultivating Moong.

Complimenting farmers for producing record quantity of Moong in Punjab, Khaira expressed serious concern at private players taking away the big chunk of produce.

He said the Bhagwant Mann government has failed the hard-working farmers of the state by not keeping the promise of purchasing Moong crop on MSP. Of the more than four lakh quintals of moong produced this time more than 85 per cent of it had been purchased by private players at a price far below the MSP.

Khaira said the AAP government has cheated farmers on this matter and the Congress would not remain a silent witness to it. “If needed the Congress would launch an agitation in support of farmers to help get them their due”, Khaira added.
