Vested interests spreading baseless rumours on Farm Bills: Sukhnandan



JAMMU: Slamming Manjeet Singh, ex MLA and President of J&K Jatt Sabha for seeking rollback of Farm Laws, Senior Vice President Jatt Sabha Jammu & Kashmir, Ch. Sukhnandan Kumar said it can be his personal views on the land laws but as far as Jat Sabha is concerned, no such discussions have been made in the Sabha as he himself is a senior vice president of the Sabha.
Former Minister and Ex-MLA Marh, Ch. Sukhnandan also attacked Congress and other opposition parties for misleading the farmer community on new Farms Bill which has recently been passed by the Parliament.
Sukhnandan, who is also Chairman Panchyati Raj Cell of BJP J&K UT, clearly said that provision of MSP is still there and these opposition parties are be fooling the innocent farmers on its pretext.
He said when Prime Minister Narendra Modi assuring that MSP will not be withdrawn, then why such hue and cry.
“Modi is real well wisher of the farming community we have ever seen in last 70 years,” Sukhnandan said and asserted that as per the new Act, Contract agreement will be for the crops not for the land and alleged that farmers are being mislead otherwise.
Not only this, he said, the new Act also provides the provisions for farmers to withdraw from the contract at any time without any penalty.
He asked the leaders like Manjeet Singh that why they have not tried to open the procurement centres in J&K when he was in council of ministers.
But procurement centres has been opened only due to the long struggle of the BJP MLAs who were elected for Assembly in 2008, he said adding that ban on Basmati has also been lifted only when he himself raised the issue in assembly that if there is no ban on Apple crop then why the ban is here on Basmati which is a major product of Jammu region.
Ch Sukhnandan cautioned farmer community not to fall prey in the hands of the Congress Party and other vested interested people who has left no stone unturned to loot the public money in last 70 years.
He said that, in the interest of the farming community and common people at large, that all the likeminded people should come out and strongly dispel the misinformation being spread by political ally motivated people.
