Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar today attacked opposition parties for their support to Bharat Bandh against farms laws alleging that confusion has been spread among farmers about the legislations.
He told media in New Delhi that opposition parties are playing politics over it and asserted that the laws are in the interest of farmers. He alleged that Congress, NCP, DMK and others are hypocritical over this issue as they had passed the contract farming act while in power.
He added that Congress has mentioned the introduction of these laws in their manifesto. The Minister said farmers had demanded remunerative price additional to the cost and the Narendra Modi government are giving them 50 percent above the cost.
