“If this decision was taken earlier, innocent lives would not have been lost,” Bharatiya Janta Party Member of Parliament Varun Gandhi said. Varun Gandhi on Saturday requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi to accept the Farmer’s demand for the MSP guarantee for their crops and agriculture by saying that their movement shall not end without it.
Letter to PM
In a document to the Narendra Modi, the Member of Parliament from Pilibhit in poll-bound Uttar Pradesh also asked him to take action against Union minister Ajay Kumar Mishra ‘Teni’ for the violence in Lakhimpur Kheri without taking his name.
Varun Gandhi thanked Narendra Modi for repealing the three farm laws, ” If this decision had been taken earlier, innocent lives would not have been lost,” he added, a day after Narendra Modi announced the rollback of the three farm laws.
Varun Gandhi highlighted the need to accept the Farmer’s demand on minimum support prices (MSP) in his letter. ” This movement will not end without the resolution of this demand and there will be widespread anger amongst them, which will continue to emerge in one from the other.
So, it is very important for the farmers to get the statutory guarantee of Minimum Support prices (MSP) for their crops,” he wrote.
Lakhimpur Kheri Incident
He said the legal binding on Minimum Support Prices would give sizeable financial security cover to farmers. “My request to you is that the government must immediately accept this demand in the interest of our nation.”
Varun Gandhi describes the Lakhimpur incident in which many of the farmers were killed as heart-breaking, and it is a ” blemish on the democracy.” “It is my request to you that a strict action is taken against the Union Minister who has been connected to this incident, so that there is a fair enquiry,” Varun Gandhi said, referring to “Teni” without addressing his name.
He also said that Rs 1 crore compensation was given to farmers martyred in this movement and that all “political motivated false” FIRs against the protesting farmers be quashed.
Withdrawal of Farm laws
Prime Minister Narendra Modi the withdrawal of farm laws and apologised ‘if some farmers did not understand what we wanted to do through farm laws.’ On the occasion of Parkash Purab of Sri Guru Nanak Dev on Friday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the withdrawal of the three farm laws and requested all farmers to return to their homes and farms.
Narendra Modi, in a rally, said the three farm laws were brought in to support small farmers, giving them more options and better prices for their produce. “But we could not convince some farmers.
Today I apologise if some farmers did not understand what we wanted to do through farm laws,” he said.
The three farm laws are The Farmers Produce Trade and Commerce Promotion and facilitation Act 2020, Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act 2020, essential Commodities Amendment Act 2020.
Ugrahan issued statement
The Centre promulgated these Farmer’s laws as ordinances. The Bharatiya Kisan Union (Ugrahan) issues a statement objecting to the rules.
Farmers expressed their apprehension, saying the farm reforms would pave the way for the distant Framers protest ling of the minimum support price system, leaving them at the ” mercy” of other political parties of the nation. Farmers protests started erupting in a phased manner in Punjab.
Amid ongoing protest by farmers and opposition parties, President Ram Nath Kovind gives his consent to the three bills earlier passed by the Indian Parliament. Farmers in Punjab began a three-day rail band’ agitation bills.
The operations of the trains suspend the Ferozepur Railway division due to the stir.
