In fact, before the assembly elections going to be held in Bihar, JDU is running on the issue of Kisan Bill. JDU has said that it is with the demand of various farmer organizations regarding the farmers bill. Farmers’ organizations have been demanding that the purchase of agricultural products be declared a crime in the farmers bill below the minimum support price. Farmers’ organizations fear that under the guise of this farmers law, private companies will buy things from farmers at a lower price than MSP.

Speaking to the Indian Express newspaper, JDU Rajya Sabha MP and Chief General Secretary KC Tyagi said that we have welcomed both the bills in Parliament. Our party has supported them. But we are also supporting the demand of the farmers, in which a law is being asked to make private companies not buy the produce from the farmers at a lower price than the MSP. Any violation should be termed as a punishable offense. Also Read – Congress waives farmers’ debt in Madhya Pradesh, BJP lied, truth revealed: Rahul Gandhi
