Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar has said that the Centre has accepted the farmers demand to decriminalise stubble burning. Mr. Tomar appealed to the Farmers’ Union to end their agitation as there is no point in continuing their protest after the announcement of repealing the three farms laws by the Central government.
He said that the farmers should respect the announcement made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi with regard to farm laws and return their home. He said, the bill to repeal the three farm laws will be tabled in Parliament on the first day of the Winter Session beginning tomorrow.
The Agriculture Minister further added that Prime Minister has also announced to constitute a committee to deliberate on the issues of crop diversification, zero-budget farming and making the Minimum Support Price, MSP system more transparent and effective. Mr Tomar said, this committee will also have representatives from farmers’ organizations.
