The AAP in India have said that potato growers in Punjab are suffering after being neglected for years by the SAD-BJP government. Gurpreet Singh Ghuggi said the potato crop was damaged due to rains and the farmers lacked marketing channels.

"Potato growers of Punjab were on the receiving end of the callous attitude of the SAD-BJP government which ruled for 10 years but totally ignored their interests," he said.

"The Punjab Mandi Board failed to come up with a marketing strategy to help the farmers when there was a good harvest. Also, there was no mechanism in place to compensate the potato growers," he said.

The AAP in its manifesto has assured the farmers that "the best marketing system" will be provided to them and full compensation will be paid for crop loss.
