Jhunjhunu (Rajasthan) [India], Oct 18 (ANI): Meghalaya Governor Satya Pal Malik on Sunday said that if the Center will provide Minimum Support Price (MSP) guarantee through a law, they can solve farmers’ agitation against agricultural laws.
Stating that the agitating farmers would not settle for less than the MSP guarantee law, Malik said that is the only thing farmers need.
“If the government (Centre) provides MSP guarantee through a law then it can be solved (farmers’ agitation against three agriculture laws). There is only one thing then why you (Centre) are not fulfilling it. They (farmers) will not settle for less than MSP.”
Farmers have been holding nationwide protests since November 26 last year against three new agricultural laws: the Farmers Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020; Farmers Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Agricultural Services Act 2020 and Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.
