A day after supporting the government in the Assembly, Punjab AAP president and MP Bhagwant Mann said the farm Bills, passed in the Vidhan Sabha, were not sufficient to safeguard the interests of farmers of the state.

Mann said the only way forward was that the state government should enact its own law guaranteeing the purchase of all crops, including wheat and paddy, at the MSP.

Interacting with the media at Vidhan Sabha Bhawan, Mann said the AAP had wholeheartedly supported the Amarinder government for the sake of farmers inside the House by rising above politics and accompanied a delegation to Raj Bhawan.

He said this was necessary to send out a clear and categorical message to the Modi government at the Centre that the people of Punjab were united against the deadly laws and stood rock solid with the struggling peasants.

Mann said, "Those in power are distributing 'laddoos' by projecting themselves to be the benefactors of farmers, citing the passage of the Bills as a big achievement of the government. This is merely wishful thinking with the eyes on 2022 elections."

Mann said, "the battle has begun but we have a long way to go to win it."
