The Prime Minister’s Kissan Package is turning out to be a disappointment as the farmers whose names were initially on the list of those eligible for compensation are being excluded from the package.

The farmers from village 13/BC protested in front of DCO Office for not being selected for compensation under PM Kissan Package.

On the occasion, the farmers including Nadeem, Wasim, Asmatullah, Tariq, Jan Muhammad, Muhammad Ramzan and Muhammad Idrees said that their farming record is not prepared by Patwari named Muhammad Shabbir Ghuloo and he had done it intentionally while he only prepared the record of few major land owners of the area.

They also accused the Patwari of receiving bribes from the farmers to put their names on the list of people eligible for Kissan package.

They demanded DCO Imran Sikandar Baloch to investigate the matter and ensure that only deserving and eligible formers take benefit of the Kissan packaged. They also demanded legal action against the Patwari.
