AAP to raise loan waiver, farmers’ suicide issues

Hoshiarpur, February 25

Expressing grave concern over the tragic suicides of debt-ridden farmers in Punjab, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) senior leader Harpal Singh Cheema said people were fed up with the policies of Capt Amarinder Singh-led government, which were causing inconvenience and devastating their homes. Cheema visited the residence of the farmer father-son, who committed suicide in Dasuya five days ago, and expressed his condolences. The deceased in their suicide note had blamed Capt and his false promises of loan waiver as the reason for taking the extreme step.

He said in the upcoming Budget session, AAP would be the voice of these grieving farmers. Cheema said AAP would raise the issue of farmer suicides and loan waiver in the session and fight for the rights of the farmers. “We will not let Capt Amarinder Singh just sit by and ruin the state and lives of the people, we will rise up and fight,” he added. — OC
