BJP: Bills have no bearing on farm laws

Chandigarh, October 20

The BJP has termed the passage of farm Bills by the Assembly a high-profile drama which will have no bearing on the Farm Acts passed by the BJP-led Centre government.

BJP national general secretary Tarun Chugh said in a statement that mere dialogues couldn't change the fortune of the farmers. He reminded Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh of his unfulfilled promises made in the election manifesto.

He said the state government should have spent time and resources more constructively by waiving the Rs 90,000-crore debt on state farmers than passing the farm Bills.

Criticising one of the Bills, Chugh said: "It would discourage traders. Also, what about MSP on maize or other crops? The state government is silent on it. Does it want the Punjab farmers to grow wheat and paddy only? The Central Acts encourage diversification of farming by providing the market all over India." — TNS
