Hardeep Singh Puri enumerated the advantages of agricultural laws, said - MSP too, mandis too, happiness too

National Desk: Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri once again enumerated the benefits of three agricultural laws. He said that the government is ready to talk to the farmers to resolve all differences. Puri shared a video explaining how a farmer is getting the crop money directly into the account instead of waiting for middlemen to get his share. '

The Union Minister wrote in his tweet that the MSP and Mandi system for the farmers will remain the same as it was earlier for the farmers. In another tweet, the Union Minister wrote that 'You will agree that directly transferring money to farmers' accounts is much better than paying through middlemen. With this, he wrote – MSP too, mandis too, happiness too. 

On his video, farmer leader Randeep Singh Mann questioned what the 'direct benefit transfer' mode of payment has to do with agricultural laws. Responding to this, Puri wrote that the government is ready to talk to the farmers on the tax difference between the mandis and the private buyers. At the same time, before this, the United Kisan Morcha had demanded the central government to immediately implement a law guaranteeing remunerative Minimum Support Price (MSP) for all farmers. The Morcha said in a statement that due to the increase in the price of fuel and other things, the farmer is not able to recover even the cost of his crop.
