Jaipur, Sep 28 (TIWN) At a time when politicians across parties are raking up the issue of the contentious farm Bills, a farmer from Rajasthan, who heads 11 districts of the state as a member of the Bharatiya Kisaan Sangh, shares his worries without bringing in politics on the issue.

Speaking to IANS, Sanwarmal, explained all three Bills in detail. He says, "In the first Bill namely, the Farmers' Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Bill, there is no mention of the MSP clause which has left all farmers doubtful. They are worried, thinking, that what will happen if MSP goes away. Although the government says that MSP is still there, but the Bill should have mentioned about the same. The deletion of this one line is the mother of all disputes in this Bill."

"Secondly, if a farmer and buyer engage in any dispute, then the farmer has to go to SDM as per the new Bill. Now, there are thousands of matters already pending in SDMs' offices in Rajasthan and farmers are tired of making rounds of the SDM office. The hearing in their matter is held only twice or thrice in the year. Now you can realise what will be the plight of the farmers if they have to go to SDM for small disputes which keep happening in their trade," he said.
