AAP’s national convener and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal Saturday visited Majhupura village of Amritsar to express his condolences with the family of deceased farmer Ravinder Singh Pannu, who had recently committed suicide after facing alleged harassment due to demonetisation.

“The marriage of Ravinder’s daughter was to be solemnized on December 5, 2016, but he could not withdraw the amount required to meet the expenses. It is quite shocking that a person who wants to withdraw money for the wedding expenditure of his daughter is handed over a note of Rs 2000,” Kejriwal said.
