New Delhi: Reacting on the ongoing rift among the political parties due to the agriculture bill, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said the Bill is for the welfare of the farmers and those who ruled this country for decades are attempting to mislead them.
“Farmers have been given new independence in agriculture. They’ll now have more options and opportunities to sell their produce. I congratulate them on the passage of Bills. It was necessary to bring these to protect them from middlemen. These are farmers’ shields,” PM Modi said.
“But the people who ruled this country for decades are attempting to mislead the farmers on this issue. They are lying to the farmers,” he added.
“Misinformation is being spread that farmers won’t get right prices. They are forgetting how aware the country’s farmers are,” PM said.
“The government is committed to helping farmers get right prices through Minimum Support Price,” he added.
Prime Minister was speaking at the inauguration of new rail lines and electrification projects in Bihar. PM also dedicated Kosi Rail Mega Bridge to the nation.
