Protest 6-7 months after agriculture law is passed: Modi
Taking a dig at the Congress, he said that the people who are running the movement in the name of farmers, what they did while in power, need to remember the country. He said that he is bringing all the deeds of opposition parties to the countrymen and farmers. The Prime Minister said that political parties should stop misleading the farmers. 6-7 months have passed since the agricultural laws were passed and now such a big game is being played to build our political ground with the help of a lie.
Government serious about MSP
Prime Minister Modi said that if the Minimum Support Price (MSP) were to be removed, then why would he implement the Swaminathan Commission Report. Our government is serious about MSP, so every year it is announced before sowing. This makes farmers easy to calculate.
PM said that the law has not come in a hurry
PM Modi said that with folded hands, he appeals to all political parties to keep the credit with them and give you credit for the promises made in the election manifesto. I just want to make the lives of the farmers easy and I want their progress and bring modernity in agriculture.
PM Modi said that the agricultural laws have not been brought overnight but instead of these reforms, the Central and State Governments have had a long discussion about these reforms for the last 20-30 years. Agricultural experts, economists and progressive farmers are demanding these reforms.
Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister targeted Congress
Before PM Modi, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan addressed the farmers. He said that Prime Minister Modi wants to double the income of farmers and the market will not be closed. He targeted the opposition party Congress and said that it is shedding crocodile tears. Targeting former Chief Minister and senior Congress leader Kamal Nath, he said that he had distributed fake certificates of debt waiver.
