Chandigarh, August 24

The three farm ordinances passed by the Centre in June are set to dominate the one-day proceedings of the Vidhan Sabha, scheduled for Friday.

The ordinances have been the topic of political debates for almost two months now. With farmer organisations on the warpath and demanding that the state government reject these ordinances, the government is likely to move a motion to this effect.

Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh has been voicing his concerns against these three ordinances, stating these would ultimately pave the way for ending the Minimum Support Price (MSP) regime in the state. He has also taken a public stand that these ordinances are against India's federal structure. By moving a motion on the issue, the Congress would earn a brownie point over the SAD- BJP, which have been supporting the three ordinances. It would also help the government keep a major vote bank of farmers in good humour, while creating a narrative against the Akali-BJP alliance.

The substantive motion on the issue, moved by "suspended" SAD MLA Parminder Singh Dhindsa, was disallowed by Vidhan Sabha Speaker Rana KP Singh today.

The Aam Aadmi Party has also realised the "political significance" of moving a motion against these ordinances, which, amongst others, pave way for private market yards to be set up outside the existing mandis. Aman Arora, AAP MLA from Sunam, has sought permission to table a motion in this regard.
