BJP Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy on Thursday urged the Centre to either scrap the farm laws or adopt his three-point compromise formula to break the prolonged deadlock.
“At the present, with the declining economy, China grabbing our land and the government mentally not ready for a war, and also elections to fight in the states, I suggest that the government either adopt my compromise three-point solution to the farmers agitation, or scrap the Act,’’ Swamy tweeted.
The MP’s remarks about China grabbing Indian land and the economy’s condition run contrary to the government’s narrative.
Led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the government has been maintaining since last summer that China has not entered or occupied Indian territory.Swamy’s farm formula involves limiting the laws to states that opt for them in writing; a clear statement that every state will be eligible for minimum support price in perpetuity; and allowing foodgrains to be purchased by only those who have no major business or commercial interests other than in agricultural trade.
The MP had added that he was personally in favour of the reforms.
