RKPA asks CM’s of states to undertake agri reforms
Rashtriya Kisan Progressive Association (RKPA) has implored the government to not get affected by the anti-farmers lobby and have requested the Chief Ministers of all 28 states and 9 Administrators to ensure execution of the reform in their respective states.
RKPA has strongly condemned and refuted ambiguous and malicious claims made by the self-acclaimed, anti-reform, section of the ‘so-called’ farmer leaders.
India needs to help farmers by the market reforms undertaken recently to assure its citizens of sustainable food security and low food inflation.
Chintan Shivir of RKPA has decided to put forth the interest of farmers and will do a mass campaign for consensus building to the crucial reforms which have been decided to repeal by PM Narendra Modi on November 19.
Emerging states like Bihar, the eastern part of Uttar Pradesh, Odisha, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, and other marginalized pockets will be affected badly after this decision due to a small anti-reform farmer leader.
These marginalized farmers, who are away from the national capital, were much hopeful with the recent three Farmers Act passed in Parliament which is now going to be repealed. In fact, 23 crops over which the MSP is provided affect only 33 percent of the farmers by all means.
National President of RKPA Binod Anand asked categorically these anti-development agents that “which system will provide MSP for all the 87 varieties of paddy and other varieties of crops from these emerging states, what crime have we done? Why are they killing our dreams and aspirations? These so-called farmer leaders want us to work in their farm as labour and helpers and force us to migrate.”
The Incremental investments in agri-infra, agri-technology, and the democratization process of the value chain are now under threat. The status quo on inter-state movement of farmers’ produce will force them into the web of poverty. There were expectations for better price realization for farmers produce by the entry of more private players entering and setting up trading platforms, innovative supply chain and would have driven investment in agri-warehouses and overall food processing, generating lakhs of employment.
