Ludhiana: Amidst the news of the rebel MLAs of Punjab Congress leaving the party, now former party president Navjot Singh Sidhu made it clear that he will continue his fight for the interests of Punjab. Speaking to the media after a meeting, Sidhu said that he would continue to work for the interest of Punjab. ‘Team Sidhu’ has been formed to look into the problems raised by the party MLAs during today’s meeting.
Sidhu, who reached the house of former MLA Amrik Singh Dhillon in Samrala, alleged that the wheat crop of farmers was being bought at the rate of Rs 2,000 per quintal, while the same wheat was being sold at the rate of Rs 3,500 per quintal outside Punjab. Dhillon said, “The government should give a profit of at least ₹ 500 per quintal to the farmers. If this money is not given, the state borders should be opened for farmers to sell their crops.”
