New Delhi, Dec 15 (IANS) Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) leader Gurnam Singh Chaduni has accused the Central government of misleading the country over the controversial agricultural laws. He said the government did not take the opinions of the farmers despite protests before enacting the laws as it wants to benefit the big corporates through them.

On the other hand, the government says that the new agricultural laws would benefit the farmers, but some people are misleading the farmers by saying they would help corporates.

BKU Haryana State President, Gurnam Singh Chaduni, who is part of the farmers’ agitation at Delhi’s borders, said in a video message on Tuesday that the government wants to hand over the trillion- rupee agro-business to the corporate sector.

Gurnam Singh alleged that the Central government enacted the laws during the corona pandemic so that people could not protest against them, but with the huge protests there is now talk of amending the laws.

Singh said when the farm Bills were passed during the Monsoon Session of Parliament there was opposition to them. At that time, the government should have called the farmers and held a debate on these laws. Why did they not call the farmers and talk about amending the laws.

Gurnam Singh said this means that the government is misleading the country and wants to hand over the entire agro-business to the corporates.

The BKU leader said that these new farm laws have been made only to benefit the corporates from whom the Central government takes electoral donations.

He demanded a statement from Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the issue of the Minimum Support Price (MSP) for crops. He recalled the discussion on the issue of MSP during the meeting of farmer leaders with Union Home Minister Amit Shah on December 8, saying that the Home Minister had refused to procure 100 per cent of the crops at the MSP, but the government said it is willing to procure the crops at MSP, so PM Modi must give a statement on this issue.
