Chandigarh, August 27

Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president Sukhbir Badal today released a letter from the Union Government "assuring that the MSP regime will continue" even as party's senior leader Prem Singh Chandumajra asked the Punjab Government to take an all-party delegation to meet the Prime Minister on the issue.

Sharing the letter by Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Tomar with the party's core committee and later with the media today, Sukhbir said the Union Government had categorically promised the farmers that the three ordinances about the marketing of agricultural produce would have no bearing on the existing policy of procurement by government agencies at MSP. He claimed that the Centre had further declared that the official procurement and MSP would not only continue but would also be the priority of the government. In a letter to Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh, Chandumajra urged him to take an all-party delegation to meet the Central ministers concerned to take a written undertaking from them that the MSP system would continue. — TNS
