Crucial farm bills passed in Rajya Sabha amid ruckus by Opposition who term it anti-farmer, pro-corporate

TMC MP Derek o'Brien trying to tear rule-book

A huge ruckus ensued after Rajya Sabha passed two contentious farm bills on Sunday, September 20 in the on-going Parliament monsoon session. The Congress-led Opposition as well as other parties tagged the bill as anti-farmer? and ?pro-corporate. The farmers of late were protesting the bill.

The bills that were passed by voice votes include Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Bill, 2020 and the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Bill, 2020.

The BJP as a result had to reach out to several regional outfits for support to pass the bill.

However, the BJP managed to get the desired numbers. The Lok Sabha had already cleared the bill despite an objection from a crucial National Democratic Alliance (NDA) member ? Shromani Akali Dal (SAD).

Trinamool Congress MP Derek O’Brien tweeted, “They cheated. They broke every rule in Parliament. It was a historic day. In the worst sense of the word. They cut RSTV feed so the country couldn’t see. They censored RSTV. Don’t spread propaganda. We have evidence. But first watch this.”


Union Minister of Agriculture and Farmer Welfare Narendra Singh Tomar said, The two bills are historic and will bring a change in the lives of the farmers. The farmers will be able to freely trade their produce anywhere in the country. I want to assure the farmers that these bills are not related to Minimum Support Price (MSP).


Agriculturists agitating against the bills, which were passed in the Lok Sabha earlier, said they were anti-farmer. They also said they feared the bill would end the mandi system.
