The new agriculture laws are a death sentence to farms: Rahul Gandhi

India Tomorrow

NEW DELHI—While farmers all over the country are protesting against the new agricultural laws which don’t mention minimum support price (MSP) anywhere and also allow private traders to buy the agricultural produce and hoard them, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has said, “The agriculture laws are a death sentence to our farmers. Their voice is crushed in Parliament and outside”.

He made the comments while referring to a news clipping that showed the Opposition MPs in Rajya Sabha who demanded a division of votes on the agricultural bills, were not allowed to do so and the bills were passed. This has led to lot of future among opposition leaders and debate in political and intellectual circles it indicated to an end of democracy because MPs were not allowed to debate and vote on the is

The three bills were also signed by President Ramnath Kovind on Sunday. They are:  The Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Bill, 2020, The Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement of Price Assurance and Farm Services Bill, 2020 and The Essential Commodities (Amendment) Bill 2020.

Congress and Rahul Gandhi have been demanding withdrawal of the three farm laws.

While opposition parties say that the new farm laws were against the interest of farmers and consumers, the government says that it would relieve farmers from middlemen and allow them to sell their produced anywhere in the country that would get them more profits.
