Chandigarh, July 9

A day before the Jalandhar bypoll, Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann handed over a cheque for Rs 1 crore and appointment letter of a government job to family members of Shubhkaran Singh, who died during farmer protest allegedly due to a bullet injury.

Interacting with the bereaved family members after handing over the cheque and appointment letter, the Chief Minister said the young farmer had died during firing (by Haryana Police) at the Khanauri border. Mann said this barbaric and tragic incident had bruised the psyche of every Punjabi.

The CM said death of a farmer is an irreparable loss for the family, which cannot be compensated by any means. However, he said that Rs 1 crore financial assistance and government job to a family member of Shubhkaran was a humble initiative of the state government to bail out the family in crisis.

The CM further said that the hard working and resilient farmers of the state have made the country self-reliant in food production due to which all countrymen are indebted to them. He bemoaned that it was on record that despite our limited natural resources, the farmers of the state have put their sweat and toil to produce grains for the country that, too, at the cost of overexploitation of the only available natural resources of the state in terms of water level and soil fertility.
