‘Give ₹3K/acre to farm­ers to man­age paddy stub­ble’

Hindustan Times (Patiala) - - Punjab -

CHANDI­GARH: The Shi­ro­mani Akali Dal (SAD), on Fri­day, asked the Pun­jab govern­ment to im­me­di­ately dis­burse ₹3,000 per acre to farm­ers for manag­ing paddy straw, while as­sert­ing that it would stand by them and not al­low the state to reg­is­ter cases against them. For­mer min­is­ter and se­nior SAD leader Bikram Singh Ma­jithia said in­stead of of­fer­ing money to farm­ers to man­age paddy straw or en­gage ma­chines to deal with it for free, the state govern­ment shifted this re­spon­si­bil­ity to peas­ants.
