Dharna by farmers in CM’s home dist exposes hollow claims on purchase of ‘moong’ pulses on MSP : SAD

Chandigarh, June 13 (UNI) The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) on Monday said that the dharna by farmers in Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann’s home district Sangrur had exposed hollow claims of the AAP government about purchasing Moong on MSP in the state.
In a statement here, SAD Kisan Wing President Sikander Singh Maluka and former minister Dr Daljit Singh Cheema said farmers who sown Moong on the assurance of the Chief Minister were feeling cheated after being forced to stage dharnas in front of the residences of AAP Ministers and MLAs and other leaders. They said contrary to the claims of the Chief Minister on purchase Moong at MSP of above Rs 7200, farmers are being forced to go for distress sale of their produce at Rs 5000 per quintal.
The Akali leaders said farmers were shocked that they believed the hollow promises of the newly elected Chief Minister and had brought their produce to the markets in high hopes of speedy procurement at the minimum support price. “But not it seems all the money spent on advertisements and media releases by the AAP government were fake as Moong was not being procured on MSP on one pretext or another”.
