Farm laws | Varun Gandhi demands legal guarantee for MSP

Varun Gandhi also demanded a legal guarantee for the minimum support price (MSP), also one of the demands of farmer unions protesting against three farm laws, saying farmers will continue to be exploited in 'mandis' (markets for agricultural produce) as long as this is not done.

Launching an attack on the Uttar Pradesh government over the issues of farmers, BJP MP Varun Gandhi alleged on Friday that "crippling corruption” in procurement centres is completely out in the open and that they are forced to sell their grains to middlemen.

He also demanded a legal guarantee for the minimum support price (MSP), also one of the demands of farmer unions protesting against three farm laws, saying farmers will continue to be exploited in 'mandis' (markets for agricultural produce) as long as this is not done.


Gandhi sought stringent action in the matter. He also posted a video of him speaking apparently to a government official at a mandi in Bareilly.
