Punjab BJP delegation meets governor on flood issue, demands compensation for farmers
Chandigarh: A delegation of the Punjab BJP on Thursday met Governor Banwarilal Purohit here on the flood issue, highlighting that the AAP government allegedly “failed” to take measures on time despite warnings of heavy rain to prevent losses suffered by farmers.
The delegation was led by party’s state unit chief Sunil Jakhar.
“We have requested the governor that answers should be sought from this government so that people of Punjab come to know how because of negligence on part of the AAP dispensation, the heavy losses caused due to floods could have been prevented,” Jakhar told reporters outside the Raj Bhavan after meeting the governor.
Floods do cause losses, but more loss was suffered due to the “negligence” of the AAP government, he said, adding the government failed to handle the flood situation.
