#Punjab #Farmers were encouraged to shift away from #bajra #pulses #oilseeds #chana & enter #wheat-#paddy cycle by a assured price mechanism policy; why not assure MSP for #pulses to Punjab farmers, which can cut 16,627 crore imports, reduce paddy acreage & paddy #straw ?
An example to show, how the shift from pulses in Punjab happened.
In 1960-61, #pulses acreage in #Punjab was 9.03 lakh hectares with production of 7.09 lakh ton, but; in 2018-19 Kharif, it dropped to 7500 hectares with a production of 6200 tons
The per kg cost of pulse import increased from Rs 16.88 in 2006-07 to Rs 42.80 in 2016-17 (rise of 10%/year). If India were to continue to import large quantities of pulses, the unit cost of such imports is to increase for sure. Why not encourage Punjab farmers to grow pulses ?

"The Integrated Tribal Development Agency (#ITDA) under the ST and SC Development department in the district had provisioned procurement of dry mahua flower from tribals at Rs. 32 per kg through self-help groups (SHG)." 1/4
#minorproduce #msp #FRA2006…
Lakhs of tribal people across 26 blocks in the Baridpada district have been suffering losses in the last two years due to Covid restrictions. They earn a livelihood by collecting mahua flowers, but are unaware of procurement provisions by the government. 2/4
"At least 14 ITDA procuring units were set up in Mayurbhanj and nearly 30 SHG groups engaged to procure MFP under the #VanDhanVikasYojana. The concerned SHGs reportedly do not cover remote pockets leaving out a large number of tribals from the ambit of government benefits." 3/4

*How #SriLanka got ruined*

Lankans voted for #Rajapakshas knowing very well what they did in the past, including corruption, selling out national assets to #China, #dynastic politics and all.

They still voted for them because Rajapakshas promised things they could not refuse.
1. Their #GST, called VAT Tax, on all products was reduced to 8%, thus making everything cheaper in one stroke. (It also killed the govt revenue). People loved things getting cheaper.
2. The minimum #incometax threshold was changed from 5 Lakhs per annum to 30 Lakhs! Very few earned more than 30L!
A very large part of the population became #tax exempt. This was very popular among the salaried class.

won’t return to their villages. Nobody trusts #Modi govt & want more clarity on parliamentary process before they leave

Why didn't @sardesairajdeep ask #BillGates why he uses his #privatejets if [alleged] #ClimateCrisis is such a concern? Why didn't #RajdeepSardesai ask this #NeoColonist #creep about all the #controversy he is immersed in?
Why didn't @sardesairajdeep & #indiatodayconclave2021 ask #BillGates abt his #criminal #neocolonization of #Indian #Agriculture & hand in #MSP & #oppression of our #Farmers? Reason for our #FarmersProtest. Was this just another chance to grovel &bootlick?

@Gen_VKSingh Dear Honorable Minister @Gen_VKSingh Ji
Here is my thread in-line with your tweets🙏
as an #AndolanJeevi #IStandWithFarmers on #FarmersCallPMforDebate on suspended #farmlaws and #MSP Guarantee
@Gen_VKSingh Now, it is clear that the Govt is adamant on #suspended #farmlaws and is misusing even #parliament to tell Lies on #MSP
refusing MSP Guarantee act to prevent below MSP purchase by anyone in India.
We Step back and understand the true ramifications of this situation for #Annadata
@Gen_VKSingh When do #Sellibrities become active to tweet on agriculture subject? When they get hints or advice, being a celebrity is a sensitive expectation from the powers and they are close to the heart of every Indian. #AndolanJeevi #FarmersCallPMforDebate on suspended #farmlaws and #MSP

Sir, with ref to your very much needed sensitive response, in ordinariness of #ordinarypeople & with commonsense of
#commonman, may we submit as follows:
1.Instead of experimenting with #3FarmActs for 1-2 yrs, why not keep those in abeyance for 2yrs?
2. Ask #40AssnsofFarmers>>
>> to submit their #ProposedDraft keeping following in view:
a. #Reforms inter-alia shifting from existing agriculture pattern in #Punjab #Haryana etc to...
b."Cost + theory" & feasibility of #MSP for all crops
c. Is uniform #FarmActs possible for all #States
3.Likewise #GOI >>
>>needs to appreciate that instead of "experimenting" for
1-2 yrs which if results in #irreversible & #irrevocable DAMAGES will be creating more
#TrustDeficit, it will be better to keeping #3FarmActs in #Abeyance to hv #LevelPlayingField to make needful decisions cordially!>>

Dissent in Democracy?
Or Anarchy?
Farmers Protests or are 'farmers' an excuse to disrupt law & order.
Mobile towers: Do they not help with online education?
Who is disrupting India again & again?
Violation of law is totally unacceptable
As of now is there any evidence to suggest MSP will go?
APMCs will go?
Any threat to farmers land?
Are vested interests indulging in fear mongering?
Is that fear mongering causing genuine & real harm to India's growth story where data & communications play a key role
What will damaging mobile towers achieve? 27 petrol pumps in Delhi's border belt have complained of zero business in past 30 days. Factories are complaining of losses & salary/job cuts. So fears of farmers due to fear mongering by netas leads to real losses on ground to industry?

Dear @jjhorgan . When can we expect counselling to be covered by #MSP of #BC? Your appallingly ignorant reply to @j_mcelroy suggests anyone unhappy w/your governance requires it. cc: @SoniaFurstenau @kulpreetsingh 1/
The reason I ask is that -there are large numbers of people (1/4 is a figure I've heard) who do live with varying degrees of mental/emotional health issues; who might benefit from professional #MentalHealth care; who don't get it; because of the stigma and/or the expense. 2/
@JJhorgan your comment was so dismissive and demeaning to so many #BCers Among them:
->the reporter who asked the question
->your fellow MLAs, whose job it is to represent their constituents (us) by questioning you and holding you to account 3/

Rather useless & farcical theory there. Fact is the govt has no more storage than the 50Mn odd tonnes it buys .
The total #food grain production of #India ~300Mn tonnes .The balance was always sold at market rates to primarily large corporations like @ITCCorpCom & @Cargill .
Also as far as the PDS procurement is concerned Data shows that the average quantum distributed through the system is some 10.7Mn tonnes per annum.
Where does the rest of the ~40Mn tonnes go ?
Well it rots & is generally sold off as animal feed & for conversion to alcohol.
The price control she talks of here only exists because most of the foodgrains are sold at below #MSP . If all food in #India was procured at MSP it would be unaffordable for most citizens .

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.

I've always maintained #India needs legislation mandating a #Defence budget at 2.5% of #GDP exclusive of pensions . This will force every govt to control populist spending for votes to help build up the Security of #India .
Absolutely , we cannot keep handing out largesse . As I keep pointing out #India spends ₹300,000cr to buy 6% of total crops on #MSP .That's 1/8th of our total receipts of ₹24,00,000cr . Guaranteeing price on all crops will bankrupt #India .
Add in expenses on subsidies on fertilizer, seeds ,free electricity etc & loan waivers & the expenses on the #agriculture sector alone is over ₹10,00,000cr .#money that comes out of the pocket of the taxpayers .
There has to be a better more sustainable way to support #Farmers.

#wheat #exports: #India to export 3.5-4 million tonnes of wheat to neighbouring countries as compared to an average of 0.2Mn tonnes per annum in the past between now & March if govt sells at international prices which are below #MSP .…
If the govt absorbs the difference #India could end up exporting as much as 7Mn tonnes of #wheat . The govt needs to empty stocks at a loss after buying from #Farmers at #MSP to be able to buy more #wheat this year.
Fact is #MSP has put the nation into cyclic losses .
As yields increase it will logically not be possible for any govt to buy crops at an #MSP higher than international prices beyond a determined stock . The rest of the agricultural produce will logically have to be sold at market rates .
