Bills a sham: Mann

Bathinda, October 23

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) state president and MP Bhagwant Mann today termed the three amendment Bills passed by the state government to negate the farm laws a sham.

He said unless the government came out with a legislation guaranteeing purchase of all crops at the MSP, the farmers would continue to be exploited. He asked the CM to ensure the procurement of farmers' produce at the MSP or else step down.

Mann visited the Maur Mandi on Friday to take stock of the cotton produce. He met farmers and listened to their grievances. He was accompanied by Talwandi Sabo MLA Prof Baljinder Kaur and others.

Addressing farmers, Mann said the cotton produce in Malwa 'mandis' and maize in the Doaba region had been lying in the state of neglect, but the CM was sitting pretty in his farm house without any concern for the farmers.

The AAP MP said if the Delhi Government could give MSP benefit over and above the Swaminathan recommendation, why couldn't the Amarinder Singh government? — TNS
