Jai Inder Kaur President of Jatt Mahasabha, Punjab women wing and daughter of Ex CM Captain Amarinder Singh & Preneet Kaur today visited Mandis (Grain Market) of Sirhind and Khanna to hear the grievances of farmers.Talking to the media after her visit to the Khanna mandi, Jai Inder Kaur said, "From last few days we had been getting complaints from all over Punjab that procurement process wasn't going well and farmers are facing hassle in the Mandis.
Today after visiting both Sirhind and Khanna Mandis I can confirm that the procurement process is going very slowly and farmers are truly unhappy with that."She continued, "Already farmers are facing a lot of pain due to China Virus that has destroyed crops of many of our Anndatas and now incessant rains have also caused the yield to lessen a lot. But instead of helping out our farmers the Bhagwant Mann government has left them on their own, not even procuring the produce that has already arrived in the Mandis."
She requested the Punjab government to help out the farmers saying, "I urge the Bhagwant Mann led Punjab government to provide compensation to our farmers who have suffered huge losses due to China Virus, shrivelled grains and lessened yield."Jai Inder Kaur also met with Fatehgarh Sahib DC Parneet Shergill and raised the issues being faced by farmers in Sirhind Mandi.
Talking about stubble burning Jai Inder Kaur said, "Farmers have also informed me that they haven't received any stubble management machines from the government and neither any compensation has been fixed by the government and if out of compulsion they burn stubble then the administration is red listing them, which is totally unfair.
I have assured them of the full support of Jatt Mahasabha and also my family and I will also urge my father to take up this matter with the Central government."Launching a scathing attack on the AAP government she said, "Now the seriousness of this govt towards farmers can be gauged by the fact that rains, bad weather and slow lifting is causing a lot of trouble in the procurement process and the CM and his all MLAs, ministers are uninterested in all this and are focusing all their time campaigning in Gujrat. Even our Anndatas have been forced to sit on protest against the CM outside his house for their demands and Bhagwant Mann isn't listening to them."
Talking about the Captain Government she said, "Everyone knows that during Capt govt farming was his number one priority and the farmers never had to sit on protests ever like this. Even during Covid times Captain Saab personally monitored the procurement process and ensured that procurement process went on smoothly."
Jai Inder Kaur was accompanied by Jatt Mahasabha Vice President Amrinder Singh Dhindsa, Senior BJP leaders Didar Singh Bhatti, Kanwarveer Singh Tohra, Gurpreet Singh Bhatti, Pritpal Singh Baliwal, Mayor Sanjeev Sharma Bittu, KK Malhotra, Dr Deepak Jyoti, Rani Ramneek, Gagan Shergill and Eqbal singh Channi.
