It was evenly utilised till 2007, but the present regime misused the funds and the multi-crore foodgrain scam has surfaced.“Even the MSP hike for wheat and paddy during the UPA regime was according to the prevailing market price, but it was meagre in the NDA regime. This clearly shows that Congress governments in the state and at the Centre are always farmer-friendly,” he said. Lambasting the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) for their false propaganda in Punjab, Channi said that AAP was just a bunch of inexperienced and visionless leaders.“AAP has no political vision for Punjab as the same bunch of leaders, who have been taking favours from the Akali Dal and Congress in the past, are heading it. They are making claims of generating 14 lakh jobs in Punjab while, according to their own government figures in Delhi in the past two years, they could only generate employment of 1,700. These figures expose the propaganda of AAP in Punjab,” he said. Others present on the occasion included Dr Raj Kumar Verka, OP Soni, Jugal Kishore Sharma, Harjinder Singh Thekedar, Jasbir Singh Gill, Karamjit Singh Rintu, Sardul Singh, Sunil Datti, Rajiv Bhagat, Joginder Pal Dhingra and Ashwani Puri.
