Regarding the farmers movement, senior minister of Modi government Nitin Gadkari said that agricultural laws have been brought to prevent exploitation of farmers. Gadkari said that it was necessary for the farmers to get a fair price.
In an interview to NDTV, Gadkari said that the price of the produce of the farmer should be decided by the farmer and not a broker. Gadkari said that farmers benefit from the agricultural law.
He said, “Efforts are being made to confuse the farmers.” What is wrong with all the three bills should be told. If you want to add something, then also tell what to add. Where farmers are unable to grow crops on barren land, what is the problem if it becomes agricultural with the help of corporate. No one can take the land of farmers. If the farmers of Punjab and Haryana do not have to do contract farming then do not.
Gadkari said, “This bill was discussed in Parliament. Even after this, we are ready for amendment ”.
Gadkari said, “A person from our Gadchiroli district was prosecuted in the Naxalite case. The court did not give him bail. Where did his picture come from in this movement? What is his relation to farming? Where did those who gave anti-national speeches come from in this movement? “Gadkari said,” We are not extracting any form of assessment. There are some elements who are taking advantage of the movement and trying to enter it. Some people are trying to take advantage of this wrongly. ”
Gadkari said, “Farmers are not very concerned with the photo shown. Farmers in my area are committing suicide and are constantly trying to stop it. We have 280 lakh tonnes of rice and there is no space to store it in the warehouse. We are working continuously for the interest of farmers. We are committed to making ethanol. We are constantly considering alternative uses of grains and sugarcane. I want farmers to talk. We are still ready for discussion and revision. If farmers get good suggestions, then we can make more than six amendments.
