Wants to create environment where farmers don't rely on MSP: CM Khattar

The Chief Minister of Haryana, Manohar Lal Khattar stated that he's ideology is to make such an environment that a farmer does not need a Minimum support price (MSP) to sell. "The last government didn't buy food grains other than wheat and paddy at Minimum support price (MSP). Why no MSP law till now. Our ideology is to make such an environment that a farmer does not need an MSP to sell," said Khattar while addressing 'Pragatisheel Kisaan Sammelan' in Karnal. "We increased harvests during Green Revolution. But did the farmer's income increase? Did he become self reliant? It doesn't seem so. This duality has plagued farmers since pre-independence from Indigo laws. They've always been restricted," CM Khattar added.
