2 crucial farm bills passed in Rajya Sabha amid ruckus by Opposition MPs

The Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Bill, 2020 and the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Bill, 2020 had been handed in Rajya Sabha on Sunday (September 20) by voice vote regardless of stiff protest by Opposition lawmakers. The payments had been cleared amid mayhem in Rajya Sabha with a number of MPs taking to the properly of the House and elevating anti-government slogans.

The payments had been moved in Rajya Sabha by Union Minister of Agriculture and Farmer Welfare Narendra Singh Tomar.

Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh welcomed the passage of the payments and tweeted, “The passage of these two bills will not only strengthen India’s food security, but will also prove to be a major effective step towards doubling the income of farmers. I heartily congratulate the Prime Minister for this unprecedented agrarian reform.”

“Under the guidance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar, the strong foundation of ‘self-sufficient agriculture’ has been laid today. After the passage of these two legislators in Parliament, a new history of growth and development in the agricultural sector will be written,” he added.

Moments earlier than the passage of the payments, TMC MP Derek O’Brien tweeted, “They cheated. They broke every rule in Parliament. It was a historic day. In the worst sense of the word. They cut RSTV feed so the country couldn’t see. They censored RSTV. Don’t spread propaganda. We have evidence. But first watch this.”

Earlier in the course of the debate on the farm payments, Congress MP Ahmed Patel launched a scathing assault on the Centre and stated, “I’ll talk about what BJP’s President said about our manifesto. He studied our manifesto & brought out a few points from it to compare with their Bill. Our manifesto is a horse and they have tried to compare it with a donkey.”

Former Prime Minister and JD(S) MP HD Deve Gowda raised questions over goverment’s determination to go the payments amid pandemic. “PM Modi should explain what would farm bills do for farming community in short and long term and how it will help in achieving govt’s goal of doubling farmers’ income,” stated Deve Gowda.

On Thursday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had defended the three payments and asserted that the payments are aimed to assist the farmers and they’re going to assist the farmers in the long term. The prime minister’s stand made it clear that the federal government is unfazed by the opposition to the payments.

The payments purpose to decontrol the sale of agricultural produce to make sure higher costs for the farmers. But opposition events and lots of farmers stated that these payments are a step in direction of dismantling the minimal assist worth (MSP) regime.
