Give farmers relief for not burning straw: SAD

Share This

Bathinda, October 7

Reacting sharply to two news reports being carried in The Tribune's Wednesday edition on stubble-burning, former Union Cabinet minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal took to her Twitter handle to criticise the state and Central governments' stance on the matter.

Harsimrat tweeted: "Unfair and unjustified! Governments blatantly ignore the SC order to incentivise farmers for handling paddy straw but don't get punished. However, when our beleaguered farmers, finding no government assistance, burn stubble, they are slapped with criminal cases."

'Don't punish them'

She also reacted to another report on SC order on MSP. She tweeted: "Instead of forcing governments to implement the SC order to incentivise farmers for handling paddy straw, some anti-farmer forces are mooting proposals to impose a cut on #MSP of the crop. For them slapping of criminal cases against 'beleaguered' #farmers isn't enough. It's disgusting. She also shared the photographs of both the news on her Twitter handle.

Notably, in one of the news reports it was highlighted that scores of farmers who did not burn paddy stubble last year have not received the compensation of Rs 2,500 per acre from the state government for over one year now. — TNS
