Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar introduced the Agriculture Bills in the Rajya Sabha. With this, the Rajya Sabha has become a forum for a heated debate on the issue. Congress has openly said that the bill is a death warrant for farmers. The opposition alleges that the bills are anti-farmer and pro-corporate. At the same time, Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar said that farmers should not be worried about the support price. The DMK, the Trinamool Congress, and the CPM demanded that the bill be referred to the Select Committee.
The Prime Minister said that the Opposition was misleading the farmers. Trinamool Congress MP Derek O’Brien has said that the Centre’s promise to double farmers’ incomes by 2022 will not materialize.
The Lok Sabha passed three bills related to the agricultural sector. The BJP is trying to get these bills passed in the Rajya Sabha. The BJP has given a whip to party MPs to ensure victory. The BJP is worried about the voice against the bill within the NDA itself. The Sangh Parivar organizations have expressed concern over the provisions of the bill.
The bill can only be passed with the support of 105 people. There are currently 243 MPs in the Rajya Sabha. 10 people are being treated for Kovid. 15 MPs on leave due to old age. In this case, the name of the pin 105 to pass the bills
will come tunakkenti. The NDA alliance has 105 members. 100 people in the opposition. The assessment is that the stand taken by the Sangh Parivar organizations will be decisive.
