RSS-Affiliated Farmers Union Demands A New Law
- The BKS says the Union government should take a sympathetic view of demands claimed by protesting farmers
- The BKS to hold a countrywide movement demanding laws for beneficial prices to farmers
- A memorandum has been sent to the Prime Minister on August 11
New Delhi: On Tuesday, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS)-affiliated farmers’ union, Bharatiya Kisan Sangh (BKS), said the Union government should take a considerate view of the demands claimed by a section of protesting farmers who are seeking the abolishing of the farm laws. The BKS, which has detached itself from the protest, has, however, claimed a new law to ensure beneficial prices for farm produce.
In Muzaffarnagar, RSS speaking against the three-farm laws said it will hold a countrywide movement on Wednesday to seek laws for beneficial prices to farmers based on their cost of production.
“Minimum Support Price (MSP) is an illusion. Farmers are not getting MSP in all parts of the country. A new stringent law should be brought which ensures that farmers’ get remunerative prices for their produce,” BKS general secretary Badrinarayan Choudhary said.
He added, on August 11, a letter has also been sent to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, to highlight the “anger and discontent” among farmers across the country for not getting a beneficial price for their produce.
