Modi Govt simply used the Ordinance route and got it converted as bills without much debate
The farmers’ agitation originated from Congress-ruled Punjab, blocking entry points to the Capital Delhi, and has become a big headache to Narendra Modi Government. The agitation against the three new farm bills has now been infiltrated by all kinds of forces including pro-Khalistani supporters, Ultra-Left elements, and pro-Jehadi outfits working covertly which have turned the agitation into a law and order problem and trying to create into a Shaheen Bagh-kind-of-pro-Jehadi protest. Now videos are going viral about the participation of anti-India pro-Khalistani elements and professional protest creators like Yogendra Yadav inciting farmers.
There are many objections to the speed at which the Modi Government passed three farm bills, which were actually long overdue in the agricultural trade. The bill in the first instance is a liberalization in the agricultural trade allowing the scope of sales and bringing cultivation contracts in the agriculture sector, enabling the entry of corporatization. After the passage of the bill, we have seen the huge investments flowing into Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Retail venture and Adani Group’s entry which has been seen as a threat by old archaic agro-products traders, who are basically controlled by many politically linked co-operative societies. Many Congress leaders, NCP Supremo and former Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar and Akali Dal controlling Badal family are having a lot of stake in agriculture co-operative societies which control the procurement and sale is facing heat on the new farm bills provision allowing freedom to the farmer to decide whom to sell and where to sell.
So many doubts have created into the mind of farmers on the future of Minimum Support Price (MSP) by so many rumour mongering elements who wanted to unleash all sort of violence.
Moreover, the new bills have hit the existing old system in Punjab which is now ruled by Congress and BJP also lost its long-standing ally, Akali Dal. It is a matter of debate whether the Modi Government could have waited for amicable solutions in the new farm bills instead of passing it as an Ordinance when the entire country was on lockdown due to the Covid Pandemic. These bills must have gone into serious debate from drafting to tabling to standing committees. But Modi Government simply used the Ordinance route and got it converted as bills during the controlled Parliament session during the Covid pandemic without much debate.
Now the matter has come to violent agitation mode. Initially, the ruling BJP also went wrong by false bravados and accusing the agitators of all name-calling. BJP’s Punjab unit is a sick unit due to its old ally Akali Dal’s supremacy allowed by BJP’s national leadership. BJP’s Punjab unit has become a mute spectator with no mass leader from the Sikh community. Now the matter became a law and order situation and Home Minister Amit Shah made appeals to the agitating farmers. So many doubts have been created into the mind of farmers on the future of Minimum Support Price (MSP) by so many rumour mongering elements who wanted to unleash all sort of violence. So many crooks have already infiltrated into this farmers’ agitation to incite violence. Hope good sense prevails from the governments’ side and farmers’ side resulting in an amicable solution.
