Farmers being misled, contract agreement for crops, not land: Jitendra

JAMMU: Attacking Congress and other opposition parties, Union Minister Dr Jitendra Singh on Tuesday said that the Contract Agreement, as per the Act brought in through the new Agricultural Bills, will be for the crops and not for the land, and alleged that  the farmers are being misled to believe otherwise.

Launching a campaign from his Lok Sabha constituency in support of the Farmers Bills brought in by the Modi Govt and against the disinformation being spread by the Congress Party, Dr Singh while addressing the party workers, Sarpanches and BDC Chairmen from the border villages and other areas of districts Kathua and Udhampur, said, “the irony is that while the common farmer is satisfied and has no apprehensions, it is some politically motivated interests which have no knowledge or stake in farming but who are trying to make an issue out of it by trying to mislead the farmers.” (AGENCIES)
