AAP Punjab ‘Kisan Manifesto’ released

aap-punjab-kisan-manifestoAam Aadmi Party on Sunday released its 31-point manifesto for farmers in Moga. “If the condition of farmers does not improve, they will again be ruined by debt,” said Kejriwal as he stressed the importance of providing aid to farmers. One of the most important promises made in the manifesto was that AAP will ensure that debts of farmers, where a sum twice the amount of the principal is paid, will be considered to be paid in full. It also promised that farmers who have taken loans will not lose their land. Kejriwal also promised that AAP, if it came to power in Punjab, will launch a loan waiver plan for farmers.
The Manifesto was released by Manifesto committee chairman Kanwar Sandhu at a party rally in Baghapurana which was later addressed by AAP national convenor and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal. Sandhu said that the party will re-enact Sir Chhotu Ram Act of 1934 (Moneylenders’ Debt) in which under no circumstances will the sum of interest payable exceed the principal amount. “All debts where a farmer has paid a sum twice the amount of the principal shall be deemed to be wholly discharged,” he said addressing the gathering on the occasion.
