Banning purchase, sale of paddy anti-farmer: AAP

Chandigarh, November 17

The AAP has slammed the Congress government for its decision to impose a ban on the sale, purchase, storage and processing of paddy in more than 4,000 sub-yards and designated purchase centres in the state, leaving the beleaguered farming community in a quandary.

In a statement on Tuesday, Youth Wing president and Barnala MLA Meet Hayer said the orders imposing an embargo on the sale, purchase, storage and processing of paddy at the designated yards and centres had come as a shocker to farmers who were already waging a battle against the farm laws.

He said the farmers had already suffered huge losses due to mismanagement on the part of the government for not putting in place timely measures to protect the paddy lying scattered in ‘mandis’ due to tardy lifting.

Hayer said: “The decision, which seems to have been taken in a hurry, overrules the Union Government’s directive to allow the sale and purchase of paddy. The decision has exposed the anti-farmer and anti-Punjab face of Capt Amarinder Singh.” He termed the decision of the government ill-timed and anti-farmer since the farmers were fighting on roads and tracks for their survival. — TNS
