Chandigarh, September 27

Terming President Ram Nath Kovind’s assent to the farm Bills “unfortunate and distressing”, Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh today said his government was exploring all options, including possible amendments to the state laws, to protect the interests of farmers.

All farmer organisations and other stakeholders would be taken into confidence before taking a decision on the way forward, the CM said, adding the state government was committed to procuring every single grain of farmers without compromising on the pricing.

The government was in consultation with legal and agriculture experts, and all those impacted by the Union Government’s legislations to decide on the future course of action, he said. Besides, the government was looking at other options to scuttle the Centre’s new laws, he said. The CM expressed anguish over the President’s assent to the three Bills. — TNS
