Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel on Sunday urged President Ram Nath Kovind not to sign the recently cleared agrarian reforms bill in the Rajya Sabha, saying that the Center was misleading the farmers of the country.
“We urge the President not to unconstitutionally sign the agricultural bills passed in Parliament. According to the news agency ANI, we also demand that the NDA government withdraw these black laws and ensure ‘one nation, one market and one price’. ‘
The Congress leader also sloganeered Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his cabinet ministers for “misleading farmers”. “PM Modi, his cabinet colleagues and BJP leaders are saying that farmers can now sell their agricultural produce anywhere. I want to ask them: when the farmers were not allowed to sell their produce as per their wish? They are misleading the farmers, ”the chief minister said.
On 20 September, the Rajya Sabha passed two major agricultural bills – the Farmer Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Bill, 2020, and the Farmers’ (Empowerment and Protection) Price Assurance and Agricultural Services Bill, 2020. During the agriculture reform bill debate, uproar was witnessed in the upper house as many opposition parties raised strong objections.
On Sunday, PM Modi once again spoke of passing the bill in his Mann Ki Baat radio program and said that this will empower the farmers of the country.
“The landlord who perseveres even during the biggest storms. During these difficult times of Corona, our agricultural sector, our farmers are a living example of this. Even during this crisis, our agricultural sector has again shown its skills. Our farmers, agriculture sector, villages are the foundation of ‘Atmanabir Bharat’. If they strengthen, the foundation of ‘Atmanabir Bharat (Self-reliant India)’ will be strong, ” PM Modi said.
