Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Friday focused the Centre over three farm payments, saying they have been have been launched in Parliament with out consulting mandi merchants and opposition events, and have been handed in a shameful method. He claimed that every one the provisions made in the payments are anti-farmer and the mandis will likely be destroyed.
“Why was the law made? Why was the minimum support price (MSP) not proposed? You can understand from it that the situation is very serious and the way these three bills were passed, it was also done in a shameful manner,” Gehlot instructed reporters.
Attacking the federal government, he claimed, “These are people of fascist thinking and they do not believe in democracy. All the work is being done so that public attention can be diverted.” He mentioned the payments have been launched with out consulting mandi merchants and opposition events. The chief minister mentioned that it took 40-50 years for mandis to be established and the federal government took a call to uproot them with out consulting the merchants in order to offer profit to large capitalists.
“What will be the situation of farmers, it is beyond imagination,” Gehlot mentioned.
