Bathinda, October 24

The state Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) today termed the special task force set up by the Punjab Government to curb the inflow of paddy from other states, including Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, for sale in Punjab mandis mere eyewash.

It alleged that Congress top leaders, MLAs and ministers were involved in the dubious deal and demanded resignation of Food and Civil Supplies Minister Bharat Bhushan Ashu.

Senior party leader and MLA Kultar Singh Sandhwan said an interstate market mafia involving top Congress leaders, MLAs and ministers of the Punjab Government was being run in a well organised manner. He claimed that a WhatsApp chat between those behind the deal and the district manager of Punsup (Patiala) confirmed the involvement of top Congress leadership in the "loot".

"Almost half the season has passed, but the government is yet to take note of the open loot of farmers by the mafia active in the state. The government is receiving a hefty commission from the mafia. Now that farmers have started checking the the illegal inflow of paddy on their own, the government is enacting dramas by setting up sham district-level task forces," said the AAP leader.
