India: SAD president Sukhbir Badal promises minimum support price for fruits & vegetables

On Monday, Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president Sukhbir Badal announced that his party would not only implement the three agricultural laws in Punjab but will also provide minimum support prices (MSP) on vegetables and fruits.

Addressing party activists Badal announced a 'Lok Lehar' against the Congress government from March 12 during the course of which rallies will be held across all the constituencies. He also made it clear that after forming the government the party would reduce urban power bills by half, give free education to the Scheduled Caste and Backward Class students and ensure cemented roads, drains and potable water in all 12,000 villages.

Speaking about the Chief Minister, Badal said he had insulted the people and had taken a false oath that he would implement a complete farm loan waiver once voted to power, besides a host of other promises. He said these included eradicating drugs within four weeks, ensuring jobs to each household, giving an unemployment allowance to young people, increasing the old-age pension and increasing the Shagun outlay.
