    Issues in the State

    There are a number of issues plaguing the state at present, prime among which are corruption, unemployment, drug addiction and receding water tables that may pose a serious threat to the state's agriculture. Revival of agriculture is a key issue which no political party has adequately addressed till now. Since Punjab is known as the granary and the bread basket of India, its looming crisis in agriculture is not just a concern for the state, but the entire nation. According to studies, water levels have dropped by 10 metres since 1973 and the rate of decline is intensifying.

    Creating employment opportunities and tapping the human capital are also two other challenges that the state must deal with in order to check the rising menace of drug addiction among the youth.
