Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann, who attended the NITI Aayog's governing council meeting in New Delhi on Sunday, said that he raised the issues of farmers including Minimum Support Price (MSP) while adding that he was happy with the meeting.

Speaking to media persons after the meeting, Mann said, "Today was NITI Aayog's 7th meeting and it was the first for me after becoming the Chief Minister. It is unfortunate that no one has come from Punjab in the last three years. I went with detailed homework today and kept Punjab's issues. The biggest issue was of the variety of crops."

Chief Minister Mann said he was satisfied with the NITI Aayog's meeting as all issues were listened to.

"We are caught up in wheat and rice. Our water levels have decreased to a dangerous level. We demand MSP for farmers and demand a reformed committee as there are no stakeholders in it. I am happy with the meeting and all issues were listened to," he said.

At the NITI Aayog's meeting, Mann suggested holding the G20 meeting in Amritsar. India will hold the G20 presidency from December 1, 2022.
