Online transfer of MSP to farmers: Centre trying to divide arhtiyas and farmers: Aman Arora

Chandigarh, March 6, 2021 (Yes Punjab News)
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has condemned the centre government’s decision to seek land records of farmers for making direct online payment of Minimum Support Price (MSP) to their bank accounts, stating that it was a conspiracy of Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led central government to harass the farmers and increase their problems.

In a statement issued from the party headquarters, AAP MLA from Sunam, Aman Arora said that the MSP online transfer is a conspiracy to wedge a divide between the farmers and the arhtiyas.

Terming it a conspiracy which will further lead to chaos in Punjab in the coming wheat procurement season, Arora said that the BJP-led central government was aimed at destroying the farmers, laborers, arhtiyas and the entire Mandi system in Punjab.

He said that it was due to this reason that the Food Corporation of India (FCI) had ordered for direct payment into farmers’ bank accounts for the wheat crop arriving in mandis next month.

Arora had also raised the issue in the Vidhan Sabha during the ongoing budget session on Friday and had appealed to Captain Amarinder Singh government to take up the matter, demanding setting up of a House committee to approach the Prime Minister in this regard, so that Punjab would not suffer.

“The crops would be arriving in the mandis from next month and this decision of the centre will create confusion and chaos as the Punjab farmers have not demanded for direct payment to their accounts and secondly, from past many decades, the relation between the farmers and the arthiyas is going on smoothly and efficiently, on which the Modi government wants to wreak havoc,” he added.

On the payment of crops to only those farmers’ whose records had been uploaded with the government, Arora said that the records of majority of the farmers was not uploaded as almost 40 per cent of the farmers in Punjab do farming after taking land on lease from owners.

Arora said that the Centre provided nearly Rs 24,000 crore cash credit limit to the state for procurement of the foodgrain and with 40 per cent of the farmers doing farming by taking land on lease, they would not be able to avail direct online payment.

“This means that when those 40 per cent farmers would not be able to get the benefit of direct online transfer, the money Centre gave for procurement would get reduced by around Rs 10,000 crore, creating confusion,” he added.

The AAP leader said that as the farmers would not be able to get the payment from the arhtiyas, as it will not be sent to them; and no record with the government would create a situation of chaos, thus leading to collapse of the mandi system.

He said that the Modi-led central government was doing this with an intention to create confusion among the farmers and spoiling their relation with the arhtiyas. Arora said that the Centre’s move aimed at punishing the Punjab farmers and arhtiyas for the agitation on the Delhi border against the three farm laws.

He said that the Modi government should abstain from playing such tricks to harass the farmers and burden them. Taking a dig at Captain Amarinder Singh, Arora said that by accommodating this proposal of providing land data, Captain Amarinder-led Congress government was implementing the black farm laws drafted by PM Narendra Modi, in the state.

He said that Captain was once again backstabbing the farmers of the state as earlier he being the member of the High Power Committee had given nod to draft these black laws and now on the order of his boss Modi, he was providing the land details of Punjab farmers.
