NEW DELHI: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Wednesday said that a team of five members will visit Madhya Pradesh to meet the protesting farmers. AAP also condemned the police firing on farmers in Madhya Pradesh and said that that case should be lodged against the erring officers over the incident which left up to eight people dead on Tuesday.
"The Aam Aadmi Party strongly condemns this barbaric act of police in Mandsaur... The party does not support any kind of violence,” AAP Delhi convener Gopal Rai said in a press conference. He also said that a five member team will visit Mandsaur on Friday. “On June 9, a five-member delegation of the party comprising Sanjay Singh, Ashutosh, Somnath Bharti, Bhagwant Mann and Sadhu Singh will go to Mandsaur and meet the protesting farmers,” Rai added.
“The government should also concede the demands of the farmers. Their loans should be waived off with immediate effect,” the AAP leader said. He demanded that the minimum support price of the crops in Madhya Pradesh be fixed at 1.5 times above the input cost.
