Bhagwant Mann, Member of Parliament and president of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Punjab, has termed gram panchayats and gram sabhas as the roots of a robust democracy, saying the gram sabhas could be an effective weapon against dictatorial dispensations. Bhagwant Mann and Leader of Opposition Harpal Singh Cheema were addressing a public meeting at Jhingar Kalan village in Hoshiarpur district on Friday.

Mann made a fervent appeal to all sarpanches across Punjab to rise above political and other considerations and immediately convene gram sabhas in their respective villages and pass resolutions against the black laws being implemented with brute force. He said that anyone, who wanted to get any information about how to go about passing a resolution in the gram sabha, he/ she could contact AAP leaders or volunteers who were just a call away.

Mann said the Aam Aadmi Party, through its jan sabha programmes being held across the state, was appealing to as many as 12,000 villages gram panchayats in the state to convene gram sabhas in their respective villages immediately so that the Union Government's move to implement the three anti-farmer agriculture laws by force could be thwarted, thereby saving the 'annadata' from ruining.

The Leader of Opposition on the occasion said the proposed draconian laws passed by the Modi government at the Centre in collusion with Captain and Badals were out make the farmers dependant on private players, saying they were not mere anti-farmer but anti-people as these laws would ruin, besides the farmer, arhtiyas, book-keepers, transporters and other sections. He alleged the anti-agriculture black laws passed by the government would demolish the farm sector and its best market regime, besides impinging upon the rights of the states, besides guaranteeing no MSP on crops right to sell their crop.
