JAMMU: Spokesperson of Jammu Kashmir BJP, Balbir Ram Rattan, during his public contact campaign to explain to the local farmers the benefits of three newly introduced Bills pertaining to the farming community, visited Bishnah block of Jammu district and interacted with small groups of poor farmers.Sharing the accurate information on Farmers’ Bill to them in village Pasgal, Balbir said that the ongoing agitation on the name of farmers is nothing but a misinformation campaign launched at the behest of some vested interests, which is in no way in the interest of a common farmer.Balbir told them that a small and poor farmer always remained poor due to the policies of the previous governments, which were designed while keeping in mind the sole interests of big landlords and hoarders.A farmer did not have any alternate market to sell his crop as a result of which he was left with no other option but to accept the price fixed by a particular buyer, he said. Now the Narendra Modi government has brought appreciable change and given free hand to a small farmer to decide himself, he added.He shared with them that the government has assured of Minimum Support Price (MSP) and continuation of government Mandi with facility of private one as well. Balbir said that the BJP government under Narendra Modi has brought these revolutionary Laws under which there would be no space for middlemen and also end the monopoly of big landlords. He said that the agitation become irrelevant in view of the fact that the government has also agreed for amendments in the interests of farmers but the vested elements behind it are adamant to go ahead with the agitation, which is not good for the nation and the small farmers.The rigid position adopted by the so-called leaders of the farmers demanding repealing of all the three Bills is against the interest of the majority of farmers across the country and is aimed at derailing the recovery of the nation’s economy post COVID-19.He said that the Modi government is determined to double the farmers’ income by 2022 for which much needed reforms have to be accepted.
