It is immaterial as to who pays the MSP. What farmers need is a legal guarantee of purchase of their produce at the MSP fixed by the Centre.

The meeting was attended by Member of Parliament Bhagwant Mann, Leader of Opposition Harpal Singh Cheema and others.

As per information, Kejriwal asked the entire Punjab leadership of the party to stand behind the farmers and ensure justice for them.

Kejriwal said what the farmers of Punjab at this point in time needed was a legal guarantee of minimum support price (MSP) on all crops. He said, "It is immaterial who pays the MSP on their crops. What they need is a legal guarantee of purchase of their produce at MSP fixed by the Centre." Kejriwal said if the Modi government dragged its feet on guaranteeing the MSP, the Capt Amarinder Singh government should enact a law to bring the MSP regime under the legal ambit.

Kejriwal asked the AAP leadership of Punjab to launch a massive campaign across the state, stressing the need for legal guarantee of MSP to farmers, saying the party would go to any extent to fight for their rights.
