New agri laws will leave farmers at mercy of big corporates: TMC

Kolkata, Jan 14 (PTI) The Trinamool Congress on
Thursday claimed that the new agriculture laws will leave
small and marginal farmers at the mercy of big corporates and
demanded that the legislation should be immediately repealed.

Prices of vegetables such as potatoes and onions have
skyrocketed as these have been taken off the essential
commodities list, the party”s Barasat MP Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar
said, adding that the concept of Minimum Support Price (MSP)
has been totally bypassed.

The way the Centre hurriedly passed the farm laws
through an ordinance without going for a parliamentary debate
clearly shows that the Union government is anti-farmer and
anti-people, she told reporters here.

“Farmers will now be forced to sell their produce to
big corporates at prices dictated by the firms. In case of a
crop failure, however, these companies are not bound to buy
the produce from the agriculturists,” the MP said.

She claimed that the West Bengal government, on the
other hand, has always been with the farmers and Kisan Credit
Cards have been provided to them.

The new farm laws are unconstitutional and show that
the Centre”s responsibility is towards the corporates and not
the people of the country, she added. PTI DC
