CHANDIGARH: In an interview to leading news paper group, Dr Manmohan Singh has said that the farmers of the country are true nationalists.

Referring to this, S. Bhupinder Singh Mann Ex MP and National President of BKU and Chairman of All India Kisan Coordination Committee said that this was a big honor bestowed by Dr Manmohan Singh on farmers. S. Mann said that Dr Manmohan Singh has always understood the importance of agriculture and the problems of farmers. The statement of Dr Singh, that farmers contribute maximum to the nation, has further raised his stature amongst farmers.

S. Mann said that the pro agriculture approach in Manifesto of Congress for the Lok Sabha Polls 2019 clearly shows that Dr. Singh has very closely monitored this and has left his imprint on the Manifesto. Be it, proposal for separate budget for agriculture, "karz mukti" instead of "karz maafi", exclusion of agriculture from Essential Commodities Act etc. Dr. Singh has always understood the pain of farmers and thats why we appreciate him; said Mann.

S. Mann said that Congress party has such eminent economists like Dr Singh who can bring the country back on economic track especially the agriculture sector.

S. Mann said "This is why we have decided to support Congress in the Lok Sabha elections so that a strong Congress Government at Centre will pull out the agriculture from the deep crisis"
