Gurdaspur MP Sunny Deol on Friday came out in support of the agriculture ordinances which have been widely protested by the farmers.
“Farmers will be able to sell their agricultural produce at a place of their choice at a better price, which will increase the number of potential buyers,” Deol tweeted.
The Modi government on Monday introduced ‘The Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion And Facilitation) Bill 2020′, ‘The Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Bill’ 2020, and ‘The Essential Commodities (Amendment) Bill 2020’.
The bills have hugely upset the farmers of Punjab and Haryana, who have been holding protests against the Centre.
Former Punjab minister Navjot Singh Sidhu also came out strongly against the farm bills passed by the Lok Sabha.
Union minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal on Thursday resigned from the Modi government in protest against the farm bills.
Informing about her decision, Harsimrat yesterday in a tweet said, “I have resigned from Union Cabinet in protest against anti-farmer ordinances and legislation. Proud to stand with farmers as their daughter & sister.”
