Set up panel to redraft Acts, agriculture scientists tell govt

Hisar, January 8

Agriculture scientists headed by former Vice-Chancellor of Chaudhary Charan Singh Haryana Agriculture University (HAU) have suggested to the Centre to keep the new agriculture Acts in abeyance for one year and redraft the Act by setting up a committee having representation from diverse sections of society including farmers.

The agriculture experts held an online meeting yesterday chaired by the former HAU Vice-Chancellor, Dr KS Khokhar. The meeting had retired agricultural scientists from different state agricultural universities and ICAR institutes as participants to discuss the present scenario emerging due to the ongoing farmers' agitation.

Dr Khokhar said the participants agreed that the demand of the farmers to give statutory provision to MSP of their produce is genuine. — TNS
