In a memorandum submitted to the governor of Punjab, AAP said: [t]he farmers in Punjab are suffering as the Agriculture has been made non-profitable profession due to negligence by successive Governments from 1947 to date. The farmers are so distressed that they are committing suicide at an alarming rate.However, it has been pointed by CAG that there is a stock shortage of Rs. 12000 Cr worth of grain in the stores of procurement agencies of Punjab. This shortage is adversely affecting the timely sanction of cash credit limit by RBI thorough commercial banks which in turn delay the payment of procured grain to the farmers. This adds to the agony of the farmers who are already committing suicide due to debt traps. Aam Aadmi Party demands that in order to bring facts before the public of Punjab an SIT to be monitored by Supreme Court of India should be set up and all politicians and officers responsible for the this “Grain Stock Shortage Scam” should be brought to book, put behind bars and dealt with as per the law of the land.
