In the previous edition of Mann Ki Baat, the prime minister had strongly defended the farm bills legislations enacted by the government and said they would benefit farmers by giving them freedom to choose where they wanted to sell their produce as well as consumers by taking middlement out of agricultural trading. Modi also took a swipe at economic policies pursued by successive Congress governments since Independence.
He said that a large number of peasants have benefitted since fruits and vegetables were brought out of the APMC Act in some states a few years ago and asserted that grain-producing farmers will now have the same freedom.
