Harsimrat Kaur Badal resigns from Union Cabinet over farm Bills

SAD's Harsimrat Kaur Badal to Resign as Union Minister Over Farm Bills

Trinamool Congress MP Kalyan Banerjee called it a "draconian bill" and "black day" in the history of Parliament for passing an anti-farmer bill.

"It will also remove middlemen and let farmers sell their produce directly to buyers", Modi said. Farmers with small land holdings don't have the money even to pay bus fares, how will they sell their produce in far-flung areas, as sought by these bills, Surejwala said. BJP's previous ally Shiv Sena has supported the bills, while BJD sent them to the Parliamentary Standing Committee. Further, farmers can get a better price of their produce. "These are farmers' shields".

The Congress leader also asked whether the Food Corporation of India would pay MSP to farmers when mandis (wholesale markets) are not there.

The three farm Bills-- Farmers' Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Bill, 2020, and The Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement of Price Assurance and Farm Services Bill, 2020--have sparked protests from farmers, many of who see it as being detrimental to their interests. However, all three bills were passed in Lok Sabha despite massive protests. Ordinance, 2020 was passed on Tuesday. Apparently, talks are doing the rounds that farmers will be deprived of a minimum support price (MSP) for their products through these acts. "These are not at all true", the prime ministers said. We have been doing this in the past and will continue to do so in the future. "If my voice had been heard, farmers would not have come out on the roads to protest", she said.

At the event, the prime minister inaugurated new rail lines and electrification projects in Bihar.

Adult volunteers sought for COVID-19 vaccine trials
WHO reports that there are now 170 candidates for a potential vaccine being tracked by the organization. Following an investigation into the United Kingdom incident, the vaccine efficacy study has resumed.

The proposed laws have triggered intense protests by farmers in Punjab, Haryana and parts of Uttar Pradesh. This bill will actually provide many more options to the farmers. "We have chose to hold a "rail roko' agitation from September 24 to 26 in the state against the farm bills", said Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Committee general secretary Sarwan Singh Pandher". The protests erupted in Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, and Telangana after the government made a decision to introduce three agricultural bills in Lok Sabha.

He wants the Bills examined by a panel of lawmakers and detailed discussions take place before any parliamentary debates. "The Centre might have thought 10 times before introducing the ordinances and pushing the anti-farmer legislations in Parliament", he added.

The Shiromani Akali Dal has three members in the Rajya Sabha Naresh Gujral, Balwinder Singh Bhunder and Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa. It had already approved the vital amendment to the Essential Commodities Act earlier in the ongoing session.

"It will lead to proleteriatisation of the peasants", RSP member N.K. Premchandran, who moved a number of amendments, said. Badal said that she was "proud to stand with farmers" in their protest against the government.

"States were not consulted", he tweeted. "They didn't do anything for the poor", he added.
