Faridkot, April 14

Farmers organised a dharna in front of the Deputy Commissioner’s office here today while observing “MSP Guarantee Week” which started on April 11.

They submitted a memorandum, addressed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, to the local district authorities, demanding that the PM Modi fulfilled the promise of guaranteeing MSP for all crops as per the Swaminathan formula at the earliest.

“As part of ‘MSP Guarantee Week’, farmer leaders are organising public awareness campaigns to press for making MSP a legal right of farmers,” said Jaspal Singh Nangal, district president of the BKU (Ekta Ugrahan).

At the time of revoking the controversial farm laws last year, the Union Government had agreed to make the MSP a legal guarantee but the demand had not been met till now, said farmers.

The week-long programme is being organised under the banner of the Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM).

It has asked farmers and farm organisations across the country to organise at least one programme in their districts so that a nationwide movement is built on the question of MSP.
