"I am not in the race and media was at liberty and could write anything, but there was no reality in reports," he said.

The Oxford-trained economist was in city along with wife to pay obeisance at Golden Temple. Talking to the media, Ahluwalia said the yield of farmers was being purchased on less prices due to which they felt underpaid and were "suffering huge financial losses."
