Watershed second in Indian agriculture historical past, says PM Modi on Parliament clearing farm payments


New Delhi, September 20

The Rajya Sabha on Sunday handed two contentious farm Bills, which have triggered protests by farmers at a number of locations, amid uproar by Opposition members.

Prime Minister hailed the passing of the farm Bills and described it as a watershed second within the historical past of Indian agriculture.

The two Bills — Farmer’s Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Bill, 2020, and the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement of Price Assurance and Farm Services Bill, 2020 — had been handed by Lok Sabha on Thursday.

The House additionally rejected the demand of a number of opposition events to ship the 2 Bills to a Rajya Sabha Select Committee for larger scrutiny.

“These (farm) bills will ensure complete transformation of the agriculture sector and empower crores of farmers,” the Prime Minister mentioned in a sequence of tweets.

He added that farmers for many years had been certain by constraints and bullied by middlemen and the payments handed by the Parliament would liberate them.

“These (farm) bills will add impetus to efforts to double the income of farmers and ensure them greater prosperity. The agriculture sector is in desperate need of the latest technology and now farmers will have easier access that will boost production,” Modi mentioned.

In one other tweet, he mentioned that he was reiterating it once more that the system of minimal help worth (MSP) and authorities procurement would proceed.

“We are here to serve our farmers and will ensure a better life for their coming generations,” Modi wrote in a tweet after the Parliament handed the farm payments. PTI
