भाजपा सरकार खेती को अमीरों के हाथों गिरवी रखने के लिए शोषणकारी विधेयक लाई है.— Akhilesh Yadav (@yadavakhilesh) September 18, 2020
ये खेतों की मेड़ तोड़ने का षड्यंत्र है और साथ ही एमएसपी सुनिश्चित करनेवाली मंडियों के धीरे-धीरे खात्मे का भी. भविष्य में किसानों की उपज का उचित दाम भी छिन जाएगा और वो अपनी ही ज़मीन पर मज़दूर बन जाएँगे.
"BJP government has brought an exploitative Bill which will make farmers mortgage their farms to the rich. It is a conspiracy to break boundaries of farms and also to end the markets that decide MSP. In the future, the true price of farmers produce will be taken away from them and they will be made labourers on their own land," Yadav said in a tweet (roughly translated from Hindi).
Farmers in Punjab, Haryana have been protesting against the agriculture ordinances passed by the Union Cabinet.
Notably, the Farmers' Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Bill 2020, Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement of Price Assurance and Farm Services Bill, 2020 and Essential Commodities (Amendment) Bill have been passed in Lok Sabha yesterday. These Bills will now be tabled in the Upper House. (ANI)
