RELEASE COMPENSATION TO FARMERS IMMEDIATELY WITHOUT WAITING FOR GIRDWARI, JAKHAR ASKS CM


CHANDIGARH: Terming the police highhandedness on farmers as totally unacceptable, the Punjab State BJP President Sunil Jakhar on Wednesday said that compensation to all affected by rain fury should be released immediately without any delay on the pretext of Girdawari.

The demands of farmers should have been handled in a humane way and nothing could ever justify the treatment meted out to our Anndatas, Jakhar said here refering to lathicharge on farmers during which a Sangrur farmer lost his life.

Tearing into state government for inordinate delay in providing compensation, the Senior BJP leader pointed out that it has been over a month when Centre provided funds to Punjab government but state government has failed to extend that suport to farmers.

When will you give Rs. 20,000 per acre interim compensation to farmers as per Delhi Model till Girdawari is finalised, Jakhar asked targetting the state government for backtracking on its promise to give timely compensation. Why are farmers being made to wait for Girdawari and how long will it take, Jakhar asked.

Asking CM to realise the constitutional duty of protecting the citizens at all costs, Jakhar said nobody's conscious can ever allow attack on a farmer demanding his rightful due from a government. Our farmers were only demanding their rightful due from this callous and insensitive dispensation when they were attacked, Jakhar said.

Under this insensitive regime, farmers of our state are enduring two tragedies - one of flood fury and second of ineptness of this almost negligible government, Jakhar lamented. This is acting as double whammy for our farmers who are regretting voting this government.
