Aam Aadmi Party eyeing to wrest power in Punjab in the 2107 assembly polls, today unveiled its 31-point ‘Kisan Manifesto’ with an action plan to prevent farmer and farm labourers suicides and make them debt free and prosperous by December 2018.

The Manifesto was released by Manifesto committee chairman Kanwar Sandhu at a party rally here 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.
