Farmer is not a trader, he is a cultivator: Punjab Assembly

Chandigarh, Nov 11 (UNI) The Punjab Vidhan Sabha on Thursday passed a resolution against the three Farm Laws passed by Parliament, stating that a farmer is neither a trader nor is he engaged in any commercial activity, he is simply a cultivator, grower or producer, who brings his produce in APMC market for selling it, either at MSP or at a price dictated by the trader.
Terming the three farm laws as an attack on federal structure, Agriculture Minister Randeep Singh Nabha presented the legislation for condemnation of three farm laws and demanded immediate repealing of these laws for safeguarding the peasantry.
The specially-convened session of Punjab Vidhan Sabha noted with concern that at the time of passage of the contentious bills in Rajya Sabha, the Opposition's demand for division by count was not accepted.
