She claimed that during this present regime in 2017 Capt Amarinder Singh had amended the Market committee act. “ while the SAD has always been very clear on its stand on any issue pertaining to agrarian sector.
It was the SAD which pioneered during Lal Bhadhur Shastri Premiership that MSP was implemented and a food act formulated . A minimum support price assuring the farmer liberated him from the clutches of poverty.
Today the ordinance allows the farmer to sell his produce at the maximum price anywhere outside.
