Declare state principal market yard: Sukhbir

Chandigarh, September 23

SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal today asked Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh to immediately declare the entire state a 'principal market yard' for agricultural produce so that provisions of the farm Bills do not apply to the state.

"This is the best, quickest and most-effective way for Punjab to pre-empt the implementation of the Centre's anti-farmer Bills in the state because the Bills cannot apply to principal market yards declared by any state government. Therefore, the Punjab Government must act without delay," Badal said.

He said the state government had the power to notify the whole state as a special market yard which was free from the jurisdiction of the legislation. "As a result, private players who enter the market will have to compete under the same set of laws as applicable to state procurement," the SAD president said. Badal said in the event of failure of the state not taking these measures, "the SAD will take them in the first Cabinet meeting when it forms a government in the state". Meanwhile, Congress MP Partap Singh Bajwa also urged the Chief Minister to expand the geographical boundary of "market yards" so as to cover the entire state as a trade area to ensure that provisions of the farm Bills could not be made applicable to the state. — TNS
