MSP will be hiked continuously in coming years

New Delhi: Seeking to allay concerns of farmers over a new set of legislations amid continuing protests by some parties, senior union minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday assured the farm community that the MSP (minimum support price) will not only stay, but it will also be continuously increased too in coming years.

He also assured that no one can claim ownership of farmers’ land in lieu of contract farming and said there are enough measures in the legislations to safeguard the

the interests of farmers.

Opposition parties have alleged that farmers would be left at the mercy of corporates under the new laws, which have come into effect after the passage of three key bills in the recent monsoon session of Parliament.

Hitting out at Congress and other opposition parties, Singh said they are trying to create misunderstandings about the farm bills passed by Parliament. PTI
