MSP can not be stopped by burning of farmers' lives, Amarinder Singh

MSP can not be stopped by burning of farmers' lives, Amarinder Singh

The government does not have any solid machinery for disposal of Parli and there is no financial assistance for farmers to install it.

After harvesting of paddy crops in Punjab, there is a continuation of burning of farmers' fields in the field for the sowing of wheat. In such a scenario, Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has said that he can not stop farmers from burning of pollution.

Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh said that farmers can not stop the burning of pollution and they have demanded to increase the minimum support price (MSP) of the crop by writing the letter to the Center.

The pollution control department of Punjab has registered 40 cases of burns between September to October. 34 cases have been registered in Amritsar district, four in Rajpura of Patiala, Hoshiarpur and one in Sangrur. The government is worried that in October, when the paddy harvesting is in full swing, more cases of burns in the state can be revealed.

Explain that the direct impact of the burning by the farmers in Punjab and Haryana falls on the environment of Delhi-NCR. On the other hand, there is no other option than burning a parali to the farmers. Because farmers have 10-15 days to sow potato and wheat after harvesting of paddy.

The government also claims to help them, but in reality, they do not have any machinery nor do any financial help to establish their neighborhoods. Farmers also want that if the government is not able to provide machinery, then pay wages only to get them to a lesser extent.

It is noteworthy that according to the data given to the Central Government on behalf of the Punjab Government, there has been a reduction in cases of burning of pollution during the 2016-17 and 2017 in the state. In the year 2016, 80,879 cases of burns were reported, they fell to 43,817 in 2017.
