Farm ordinances pave way to loot farmers: Arhtiyas

Karnal, August 12

The Haryana Arhtiyas' Association criticised the Centre's three farm ordinances and announced to hold a joint meeting of the executive bodies of the commission agents from the state, Punjab, Rajasthan and Chandigarh on August 16 in Sirsa to decide future course of action.

This was decided in a state-level meeting here on Tuesday. Besides, they have also announced to extend support to the farmers' protest against these ordinances on August 15 across the state.

"With these ordinances, the Centre is giving a free hand to certain capitalists to loot farmers. These ordinances should be revoked with immediate effect," said Ashok Gupta, state president, Haryana Arhtiyas' Association.

He said despite the state government order, the procurement agencies were not giving payment to arhtiyas and farmers. "If our demands are not met, we will be forced for a hard movement," Gupta added.

Meanwhile, Rajnish Chaudhary, chief, Karnal Arhtiyas' Association, said as per the new ordinances, the farmers' crop could be purchased by any buyer who has a PAN card, while those purchasing in the grain markets must have the GST details, market licence along with other documents. — TNS
