Punjab Congress chief Captain Amarinder Singh will launch a farmer outreach programme — party’s door-to-door campaign — on Wednesday by visiting farmers’ homes in Gurdaspur.
The programme, christened “Karza-Kurki Khatam, Fasal Di Poori Rakam,” is aimed at connecting with the farmers, with an assurance of debt waiver if the Congress is voted to power.
Amarinder will also visit grain markets in Fatehgarh Churian, Kalanaur, Batala, Dera Baba Nanak and Ghaniyae Ke Bet mandi across the Ravi bridge where he will join the local farmers for lunch.
Carrying the “kisan jholas”, Amarinder will go to farmers’ houses in Kot Surat Malhi in Gurdaspur. The “kisan jhola” will contain ‘maangpatras’ (pro formas), mobile stickers, badges, door stickers and marg darshika. The “maangpatra” will record household details and farmers’ debt.
The Congress plans to establish a direct contact with 75 lakh voters by October 25, according to a press statement.
