Centre withdrawing brand-new agriculture laws highly not likely, state

[h3] [/h3] [h3] [/h3] BRAND-NEW DELHI|PUNE: The federal government expects difficult settlements with farmers as it is unlikely to accept the demand of withdrawing the brand-new laws when the 2 sides fulfill for the 6th round of settlement on Wednesday, officials stated.”Farmers are requiring repealing of laws, which doesn’t look possible. There is little room for improvisation in laws. We have actually gone over each and every arrangement in information. The government may propose choice for legal intervention over disputes, which based on the current law need to be fixed in courts of sub division magistrates and district magistrates,” said a senior agriculture ministry official.He stated the federal government remained committed to the minimum support price (MSP) system.”The government purchases 40-45% of the total production of wheat and rice at MSP to feed two-third of population under National Food Security Act. So, federal government purchase is bound to continue to fulfil this political commitment. No government can take risk to discontinue schemes that guarantee income for farmers,” he said.The official said that fear of MSP ditching is baseless as government transfers more than Rs 2 lakh crore yearly to farmers’ savings account towards procurement of grain, oilseeds and pulses besides providing Rs 76,000 crore to farmers under PM KISAN plan.

“Apart from that, government spends more than Rs 1 lakh crore for subsidised fertiliser, seeds and watering facilities. We are devoted towards farmers well-being,” he said.The official stated that the procurement of rice so far has gone up by 20% from last year, showing federal government’s dedication towards continuing MSP.Farm leaders however are adamant and are getting support from traders in mandis. In Maharashtra, about 300 wholesale markets will stay closed for the Bharat Band contacted Tuesday. Most mandis are controlled by the Nationalist Congress Celebration (NCP), part of the Shiv Sena-led union in Maharashtra. A handful are managed by the Congress or the BJP Dilil Mohite Patil, NCP leader and president of Maharashtra State Market Committee Cooperative Union, an association of 306 APMCs, stated APMCs are for the advantage of farmers. “As we represent farmers, we think it is needed to extend moral support to the farmers.”
