Farmers in other states will not be able to sell crops in Madhya Pradesh, says Shivraj Singh Chouhan
Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said on Thursday that the state government will only buy the yield of Madhya Pradesh’s crops, and if someone from other states tries to sell their crops in the state, then their trucks will be confiscated and they will be jailed.
Addressing the crowd in Sehore, he said: “I have decided that only the products of crops harvested in the state will be purchased. If someone comes from out of state, even tries to sell from neighboring states, then his truck would be impounded and he would be sent to jail. ”
The Chief Minister was addressing a program organized in Nasrullaganj in Sehore to transfer an amount of Rs 100 million under Chief Minister Kisan Kalyan Yojana into farmers’ banks.
Kisan Kalyan Yojana was launched by the Prime Minister of Madhya Pradesh following the path of Pradhan Mantri Kisan Kalyan Yojana. Under the Kisan Kalyan Yojana, the state government will pay farmers a Samman Nidhi of 4,000 rupees like the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Kalyan Yojana, which pays 6,000 rupees every year in 3 equal installments.
In the context of the farmers’ protest, the BJP leader also attacked the opposition, claiming that Congress has always been against farmers. He blamed Congress for the chaos and violence in Neemuch and Mandsaur districts, saying it was Congress that distressed and instigated farmers. He went on to add that he will not allow the opposition party to create chaos in Madhya Pradesh.
“Congress has always been against farmers. They are distressed, looking for some chaos. It was the same Congress that instigated the farmers at Neemuch & Mandsaur and fueled the violence. We will not allow Congress to do this at any cost in Madhya Pradesh, ”said the prime minister.
Farmers across the country are protesting in the national capital against the three new agricultural laws introduced by the government. Farmers protesting Wednesday had called for a special session of Parliament to repeal anti-farmer laws that were enacted in September earlier this year.
