Special girdawaris not being conducted in many villages: MLA Chaudhary

PHILLAUR April 3 (Jaswinder Singh Azad)- MLA Vikramjit Singh Chaudhary said on Monday that the compensation promised to the farmers for their crop losses was grossly inadequate and the Aam Aadmi Party government had failed to deliver on its promise.

He visited agricultural fields in Atti, Phalpota and Dhuleta villages of the Phillaur assembly constituency and met with farmers to listen to their grievances. He said the recent heavy rains in Punjab had caused extensive damage to crops and property, and yet the AAP government had not taken the necessary measures to compensate the affected farmers and residents. Before the assembly elections, MLA Chaudhary said, the AAP had made tall claims for the farmers’ welfare, but now the ‘annadata’ was being left high and dry.

He pointed out that the amount of compensation promised to the farmers for the crop damage was not sufficient and the farmers had expressed their deep dissatisfaction, adding that the compensation being paid was much less than what was promised by the AAP before the assembly elections last year.

CM Bhagwant Mann had ordered a special girdawari in the state

The Phillaur MLA further said although CM Bhagwant Mann had ordered a special girdawari in the state, no official had visited large parts of Phillaur constituency to assess the crop losses.

“The AAP government’s failure to provide adequate compensation to the farmers affected by the recent rains is a clear example of their inability to fulfil their promises,” Chaudhary said. “The farmers are the backbone of Punjab’s economy, and it is the government’s responsibility to protect their interests and ensure their well-being,” he added.

Chaudhary called on the AAP government to take immediate action to conduct girdawaris and compensate the farmers affected by the heavy rains.
