NCP Chief and the country’s Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar has advised the Central Government to take the issue of farmers seriously. He said that the central government is imposing all three new agricultural laws without consulting the states. The government wants to run farming in Delhi, but it cannot be done.

Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar had claimed that Sharad Pawar, while Agriculture Minister in the Manmohan Singh-led UPA government, also wanted to improve agriculture, but could not do so due to political pressure. Pawar said that he wanted to improve agriculture, but not in the way this government is doing. Pawar said that the matter is to be discussed with the government and 40 unions of farmers on Wednesday. If this meeting also fails, the opposition parties will plan ahead accordingly.

‘If we take advice from the states, such a situation does not happen’

In an interview to news agency PTI, Pawar said on Tuesday that Manmohan Singh and I wanted to bring some improvement in the agriculture sector. At that time, the Ministry of Agriculture talked for a long time on the proposed reforms with agriculture ministers and sector experts from all states. Some states had some strong objections about this. Before taking the final decision, the Ministry of Agriculture again asked the state governments for their opinion.

Pawar alleged that this time the Center neither consulted the states nor held a meeting with the state agriculture ministers before drafting these bills. He passed the bills in Parliament on the strength of his strength, hence all these problems have started. If state governments had been taken into confidence then such situations would not have happened. Farmers are worried that these laws will abolish the MSP system. The government needs to do something to address these concerns.

‘Government should send talks to farming-farmers’ ministers’

Pawar also questioned the group of three ministers talking to farmers. He said that the government should put forward those who deeply understand the issues of farming and farmers. He said that I do not want to take any name, but there are some people in the government who understand these issues better.
