Chandigarh, June 5

Shiromani Akali Dal president Sukhbir Singh Badal said on Friday that his party would never compromise on the issue of Minimum Support Price (MSP) and assured marketing for farmers’ produce, especially for paddy and wheat. He said his party had already ensured that the present assured marketing and MSP regime for farmers produce would continue.

Countering the Chief Minister on the issue, Sukhbir said Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh today “lied on the issue of changes in the Agriculture Produce Market Committee (APMC). He has in fact already given his assent to the main provisions of the Act on August 14, 2017.”

He said there was no need for the Akali Dal to leave the NDA alliance led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi as the PM and the Union Agriculture Minister had already clarified that the MSP would stay.

“SAD will never tolerate any deviation from the principle of assured marketing and MSP. We have already ensured that there are no compromises on these issues in the Act,” he added. — TNS
