The three controversial farm bills brought the farmers’ agitation and blocking roads as well. This led to Bharath Bandh as well. There are a few questions in light of the agitation.

1.In the agitation, the farmers from Punjab and Haryana have been participating. No other state’s farmers are participating. What is the reason?

The Mandis or the market yards have a stronghold in Punjab and Haryana. Most of the political parties have been nominating politically influenced people in different roles of market yards.

2. A loophole in contract farming: There is a loophole in contract farming, that is, if a corporate company gets disputes with the farmer, the government officers would resolve the problem and the provision of going to the court of law is not provided, and this is the biggest loophole in this act.

3. Problem to the middle man: Middle man has been earning money and now the middle man has to face the competition with business giants which are way bigger than him.

4. How the market yards are operating in many parts of India: Except Punjab and Haryana, and in a very few states the market yards are up to the mark and operating well. But, in most of the states like Andhra Pradesh, Maha Rashtra, Telangana, Tamil Nadu, Orissa, etc, the market yards have become a place for opportunists who crates trends and bring down the rates of the vegetables and fruits in the market yards.

5. Previously it was not permitted to sell the production of farmers outside market yards, but now, the central government has agreed to sell the product outside the market yards.

6. Who supports the Bharath Bandh? Today many parties have supported the agitation against the three farm bills which were passed and became acts, by all the major parties except the ruling party.

7. What is the major allegation? The major allegation is, the government has been supporting the corporate sector.

8. Dr. Jaya Prakash Naraya, president of Lok Satta party, former collector and former MLA of Kukatpally, and intellectual said that the acts which are brought are important but not sufficient. He said that way ahead to go and bring reforms in farming. He worked as a collector and MLA and as a leader to the Loksatha party he worked for farmers.

9. Dr. Jaya Prakash Narayan gave an example of prawn and fish culturing and exporting them to foreign. He said that there is no restriction on them so the export of fish and prawn has been rocketing in its sales and by giving this example that,  even farming should also come.

10. Does the Minimum Support price have been canceled by the government: The government has explained that the Minimum Support Price has not been canceled.

11.Why the Minimum  Support Price not mentioned in the act? The Minimum Support Price has not been mentioned in any act even by previous governments. The previously elected governments have been supporting farmers as a good gesture towards farmers, not as per the act.  The same tradition has been continuing.

12. The Emergency Commodities act also needed to be changed as this act was made as per the 2nd World War situation.

These are a few points about the agitations and farm bills.
