Ludhiana, January 23, 2016: Condemning the decision of the Punjab Govt to cancel the registration of the land of farmers in Bet areas of rivers, Aam Aadmi Party Kisan and Labour Wing President Capt. G S Kang and General Secretary Ahbaab Singh Grewal in a joint statement said that Punjab Government is bent on destroying farmers livelihood and is completely insensitive to their needs.
Capt. G S Kang said that farmers and labourers in these areas had toiled for decades and turned these barren areas fertile and now the Punjab Government is taking over their lands, arbitrarily and destroying their livelihoods.
Ahbaab Singh Grewal said that as it is thousands of farmers and farm labourers are committing suicides because of the wrong policies of the SAD-BJP Government, now by taking over 70000 acres of the fertile land, the Govt is taking away livelihoods of thousands of families and pushing them to take extreme steps. Aam Aadmi Party will never allow such injustice to happen.
For this purpose AAP Kisan and Labour Vice President Mohan Singh Virk and Ludhiana and Fatehgarh Sahib Zone Incharges of the wing will specifically go into these areas to gather information and organise farmers and labourers to protest. He said that AAP will fight tooth and nail to prevent SAD-BJP Government from doing such injustice.
