Jamshedpur : Accusing the opposition of misleading people about the Agriculture Bill, MP Bidyut Baran Mahato said that the truth is different from the story of the opposition. He said that whatever companies will have an agreement with the farmers, it will be only the produce (grain) and not the land. Thus, to say that the farmers’ land will be occupied by a private company is absolutely wrong.
Talking to reporters in his Bistupur office on Wednesday, the MP further said that the opposition is airing that the procurement of food grains at the minimum support price (MSP) will be stopped, while the truth is that earlier support on the minimum support price The purchase will continue as it is. Apart from this, if the farmers get more than that price outside the market, then the farmers will be free to sell it. Actually, after these 70 years, the farmers are feeling free, which is not digesting the opposition.
The MP said that this effort of the Modi government through the Agriculture Bill is to double the income of farmers. Similarly, in case of any type of dispute during this period, the dispute can be settled without the intervention of local administrative officials (of SDM level) without going to court. A pumplet was unveiled by the initiative of its former MP, which has given many important information about the Agriculture Bill. The said pamphlet will now be transported from village to village through the members of Kisan Morcha.
