Re: #FarmersProtest There is a great deal of ignorance and misinformation about the freedoms currently available to Indian farmers and big business houses., even before the #farmLaws were dreamt up by the #ModiGovt that is causing so much turmoil in India.
Take one example. When McDonald's (NYSE: MCD; Market Cap USD 158 Bn) opened in India, they found the Indian potato was not the right kind for their french fries. The Govt did not allow the import of American or European potatoes. What did they do?
Read on:
McDonald India went to the enterprising Indian farmer and did a deal "Grow this variety of potato, to these specs and we'll guarantee to pay this price and what's more we'll pick up your crop come what may". No #mandis no #APMC. #ContractFarming with guarantees.

Disagree !
1) Set a limit on #MSP purchase say 5Mn tonnes .
2) Ensure all of it is purchased directly from #Farmers via #ContractFarming for @FCI_India .
3) Ensure the contracts go only to #Farmers having 5acres or less land with a total asset calculation of less than ₹10Lakh.
#MSP is necessary to uplift the downtrodden small #Farmers & hence should not be abolished . What is necessary is reformation of the system to cut out the #APMC via direct Contracts by @FCI_India under a @Amul_Coop like cooperative model to directly acquire grains from farms .
The govt of #India needs to reform @FCI_India as well , turn it from a PDS feedstock storage to a true #food corporation that can be used to sell FCI branded flour & Rice directly to consumers on market prices under the @kvicindia model .
Expand to other foods as well.

#Agriculturallaws - Apprehensions - Truth

5. Under contract farming big companies will enter and exploit farmers .

Should there be investments in warehousing , post harvest technologies,processing ,grading,blue addition?

If answer is yes where will it come from ?
Governments have tried failed . Agro industries corps in all states gone bankrupt writing down public investment .cooperatives but for #amul there is no other success . Today biggest problem is storage losses ,and low value for agriculture commodities due to lack of processing .
Intellectuals who oppose it suggest where investment will come.We need investment here for agriculture to turn profit . Yes we need proper frame work to control corporates but foolish to throw the baby with bath water . #FarmersProtestDelhi #agriculturalreforms #contractfarming

Agricultural Acts - twisted facts Vs facts.

1. farmer can not sell his bag of rice in Assam from AP since it is one national market hence the act is not useful is twisting of fact.

Fact is with market yard check posts gone there will be freedom of movement of goods .
With freedom to buy outside market yards and within market yards competition will be more benefitting the farmer with a better price .market yards also improve their performance since there is competition . #FarmersAct2020

सत्ता में रहने के दौरान आपका #कालखंड ही याद दिलाना चाहता हूँ
कृपया पोस्ट के साथ ये दोनों #संलग्न_पत्र ध्यान से देखिए

जिनमें से एक पत्र दिल्ली की भूतपूर्व मुख्यमंत्री #स्व0शीला_दीक्षितजी को एवं दूसरा पत्र #मध्य_प्रदेश के मुख्यमंत्री #शिवराजसिंह_चौहानजी को लिखा गया था।
जो #काँग्रेस😠 के सत्ता में रहते हुए #वर्ष2010 में तत्कालीन #कृषिमंत्री #शरदपवार😠द्वारा देश भर के मुख्यमंत्रियों को लिखा गया था।
जिसमें तत्कालीन #कृषिमंत्री एपीएमसी(#APMC) में #संशोधन कर #निजी_सेक्टर को #किसानों से सीधे खरीद करने का समर्थन करते दिखाई दे रहा है।

Defanging #APMCs mean👇

Farmers can sell directly to processors,at price they wish to,with no middlemen

Farmers can sell beyond Notified Mandi

#MSP to continue

#TradeCartelisation to end

@narendramodi gov creating single #AgriMarket
My Oped @firstpost
firstpost.com/india/defangin…
While @HarsimratBadal_ has politicised the issue,#Punjab,an @INCIndia ruled State,is one of the few States that already allows #ContractFarming,in select commodities,to farmers,via separate State legislation..So opposition to #FarmBills by Congressis&Akalis,is not about Farmers!
Are #Akalis opposed to #FarmBills of @narendramodi govt,as these Bills once they become Acts,will strip Mandi Traders,wily Commission Agents,Food Processors,Exporters&Marketing Committees of #APMCs,of the brazen power they wield,forcing farmers to sell their produce,dirt cheap?😑
