The Punjab CM said his doors are open for talks with farmers as they have a democratic right to hold a dharna but they should tell their issues.

Talking to reporters after returning from Delhi, the Punjab Chief Minister said that the staggered programme of paddy sowing will not harm interests of farmers but it can act as a catalyst to save underground water.

Mann said he is also the son of a farmer and he knows how it could happen and also asked the farmers to support him for a year. If the farmers suffer any loss during this period, then the state government will fully compensate them, he said.

Punjab CM also asked the agitating farmers to tell whether he was wrong because he is thinking about saving water and checking environmental pollution in the state.
