Union Minister of State for Finance Anurag Thakur while answering a question in Rajya Sabha has openly challenged the entire opposition including Congress on the issue of agricultural laws. He said that the leaders of the opposition parties should tell where in the agricultural law that the mandi and the MSP will be closed. Do not use farmers for your politics. If we have taken the job of doubling the income of farmers, then we will leave it.
My open challenge to the leaders of the Congress and the opposition party is that where is it written in the Agricultural Law that the Mandi and MSP will be closed. Do not use farmers for your politics. We have taken the task of doubling the income of farmers, then we will leave it only: Union Minister of State for Finance
Record increase in capital expenditure
Anurag Thakur said that there is hope in Budget 2021. This hope is for a new India and self-reliant India. In particular, the capital expenditure has been increased by 34.5 percent, which is a record in itself. He said that a major part of 65,000 crore has been given in the PM Kisan Yojana in the budget.
Government committed to double the income of farmers
He said that anyone who has a black eye can call the agricultural law a black law. This law has been introduced only to double the income of farmers. We will leave only double the income of the farmers.
