'Cruel joke': Amarinder Singh mocks 'paltry hike' in MSP of wheat, other crops

TimesNowNews

Chandigarh: Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Monday dismissed the Centre's "paltry hike" in the MSP of wheat and five other Rabi crops as a "cruel joke" on the farmers amid their growing apprehensions about abolition of the MSP regime following the passage of the new agriculture Bills in Parliament.

"This is callous. They have made a mockery of the farmers' protests over the farm Bills, which by all accounts will eventually pave the way for ending the minimum support price (MSP) system and abolish the Food Corporation of India," he said.
