Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal participated in a protest organised within the metropolis by the Punjab unit of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and demanded an entire rollback of the three recently-enacted central farm legal guidelines.
Addressing his social gathering employees on the Jantar Mantar in Delhi, Mr Kejriwal stated the AAP has a really clear stance on the farm legal guidelines.
“We want a complete rollback of the three laws. It is non-negotiable,” he asserted, “Second, a law on MSP (Minimum Support Price) must be brought in the country. The whole of Delhi is standing with farmers in this fight and as Delhi chief minister, I support you in this protest.”
Mr Kejriwal stated some events are indulging in politics over the three contentious farm legal guidelines.
“When the bill was being made a leader of the national party was present in the committee, and who congratulated the BJP for making the law, and made sure that the bill got passed and when it was passed they are protesting. Are people stupid?” Kejriwal stated with out naming anybody.
He claimed that the BJP made a promise of implementing the Swaminathan Commission report however they’re doing precise reverse to what was really helpful in it.
“When they came asking for votes they said they will implement the Swaminathan report, but after winning what did they do? They are removing the MSP. When our government was formed in Delhi, government schools and hospitals were in a bad shape. So what did we do? We did not shut them, we improved them. The BJP has betrayed the farmers of this country,” he stated.
He was joined by senior social gathering chief Sanjay Singh, AAP MP Bhagwant Mann and different social gathering MLAs on the protest.
The three legal guidelines — Farmers” (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement of Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020; Farmers Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020 and The Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act 2020 — took impact from September 27 after President Ram Nath Kovid’s assent.
The farmers have expressed apprehension that the Centre’s farm legal guidelines would pave the best way for dismantling of the minimal assist worth system, leaving them on the “mercy” of huge corporates.
The authorities has maintained that the farm legal guidelines will carry farmer higher alternatives and usher in new applied sciences in agriculture.
