PM Modi reaffirms stand on agri reforms as Punjab farmers intensify protests

Amid the raging protests by the farming community, mainly from Punjab, against the new agricultural reforms, Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his monthly radio show Mann Ki Baat on November 29 reaffirmed his stand on the contentious farm laws, stating that the new farm reforms have not only broken shackles of farmers but have given new rights and opportunities to them.

"Parliament has recently passed farm reform laws after rigorous brainstorming.

These reforms have not only broken shackles of farmers but have also given new rights and opportunities to them," said PM Modi.

He further informed about a Maharashtra-based farmer Jitendra Bhoiji who, the PM said, benefitted from the new farm laws by getting good price from traders for the maize he produced.

"You should know how Jitendra Bhoiji, a farmer in Dhule, Maharashtra used these new farms laws.

He produced maize and decided to sell it to traders at the right price.

The total amount agreed at was around Rs 3.32 lakh," said PM Modi during Mann ki Baat.

Farmers, mainly from Punjab, have camped in and outside the national capital to intensify their protests against the new farm laws.
