MSP is bigger issue than farm laws, says Navjot Singh Sidhu

Chandigarh (Punjab) [India]: Punjab Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu on Friday said that issues related to Minimum Support Price (MSP) are bigger than the farm laws.
Sidhu said if the central government genuinely wants to fulfil its promise of doubling the farmers’ income then it should fulfil the demand for legislation to guarantee a remunerative MSP. “MSP is bigger issue than farm laws, it is the lifeline of Indian farmers … If the central government genuinely wants to fulfil their promise of doubling the farmers income or accepting the C2 formula of Swaminathan report, then they should accede to this demand,” Sidhu said in a tweet.
Hailing the Centre’s decision to repeal the three farm laws, Sidhu termed it as a “step in the right direction”.
He added that the “sacrifice” of the farmers has “paid dividends”.
“Repealing of black laws a step in the right direction …. Satyagraha of Kisan morcha gets historic success…. Your sacrifice has paid dividends…. Revival of farming in Punjab through a roadmap should be the top priority for the Punjab government ….accolades,” Sidhu said.
In a major move, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday announced that the Centre will repeal the three farm laws and bring necessary bills in the winter session of parliament beginning later this month. Farmers have been protesting on the borders of Delhi against the three farm laws.
