Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar says farm reforms have been brought forth keeping in mind best interests of farmers

@PIB_India
The Government has said that the farm reforms have been brought forth keeping in mind the best interests of the farmers. Addressing the media in New Delhi, Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar said, the government wanted to liberate the farmers of the shackles of mandi so that they could sell their produce anywhere, to anyone, at their own price, outside the purview of the mandi.

He said, the government expressed that it is ready for open-minded discussions on provisions they have objections against. He said, the Centre tried to explain to the farmers that laws do not affect the Agricultural produce market committee or the Minimum Support Price.

The Minister said, the government kept waiting for suggestions from farmers' leaders to address their concerns, but they are stuck on repeal of laws. He also said that during the talks, many said that farm laws are invalid as agriculture is a state subject and the Centre cannot frame these laws.
