Over 850 academics sign open letter in support of farm laws

More than 850 academicians across India, on Friday, came out in support of Centre’s recently passed three farm laws and signed a petition confirming the same.
In an official statement, signed by academicians from Vice-Chancellors to professors, they laid out their reasons for supporting the laws and said that the farm laws were beyond mandis.
Union government has repeatedly said that the Minimum Support Price (MSP) isn’t going anywhere and farm laws will open markets beyond the local mandis, read the statement.
It further continued to say that the new farm laws would provide full autonomy for farmers to sell their harvest and as the entire three farm bills were passed in the monsoon session of parliament under the ago-reform, the bills had the consent of the majority of parliamentarians.
Centre is committed towards minimum government and maximum governance. India is a country, where most of the population earns a livelihood through farming. Farm laws will maximise their profits and help them ease their way of living, the statement added.
The statement ended by stating the say of the academicians, We stand in solidarity with both, the government and the farmers, their intense efforts are worth saluting. We all will live, progress and develop together peacefully.

The TMC has ensured it has additional stock of oxygen concentrators, testing kits, medicines, to name a few. Bangar told HT, “Due to the increasing number of Covid patients, it is necessary for everyone to be alert.”

He added, The number of Covid tests should be increased to stay one step ahead of the disease. As a result, the number of patients is likely to increase due to increased testing. However, as per the ‘test, isolate, treat’ protocol for Covid, it becomes necessary to isolate and treat more and more patients. The testing centres will not remain closed even for a single day. At the same time, more arrangements for testing will be made immediately in public places, markets, railway stations, malls.”
