Maintaining there was no going back on the three agriculture Acts, BJP national president JP Nadda today asked Punjab BJP leaders to fan out in rural areas instead of focussing on urban pockets to deepen the party's reach in the state before the next Assembly elections.

State govt misusing rural fund: Chugh

  • Tarun Chugh, BJP national general secretary, on Wednesday accused the state government of diverting the Rural Development Fund and defying the purpose for which it was meant.

Delivering the first Kamal Sharma memorial lecture via video-conferencing, Nadda called upon the state BJP leaders to adopt an aggressive approach against the Congress' propaganda and explain the good provisions of the Acts to farmers.

"These farm Acts will remain as they ensure the farmer reaps one and half times profit on the sale of produce. Contractor or trader is bound by law to incur any damage to crops due to weather. Significantly, no contract with any

trader would include the land of farmers. The contract would be of the produce only," he said.

The BJP president claimed the party had a lot of support in Punjab and in order to become number one in the state, the party has to spread its wings in the rural areas.

Opposition Lying

Opposition parties are against the Central agriculture Acts purely for political reasons and deceiving the farmers as they have failed to deliver anything reformative to them.


Ridiculing the Punjab Congress and Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh, Nadda said the Congress was, in fact, opposing the commitments it had made in its 2017 election manifesto.

He said the Congress had promised to do away with mandis and promote contract farming and this was what the Narendra Modi government had ensured in the new legislations. "Will the Congress say that it made wrong promises in its manifesto?" Nadda asked.

He said the three farm Acts would not only empower the farmers in the country, but would also release them from the age-old bondage. He asssured that there would be no change in the minimum support price (MSP) system.
