Mumbai: Nawab Malik, a minister in the Maharashtra government and senior leader of the NCP, said that the three parties of Mahavikas Aghadi, Congress, Shiv Sena and NCP will pass a resolution against agriculture laws in the assembly. He said that NCP, Congress and Shiv Sena all three parties were against the new agricultural laws of the Center earlier and still we are against it.
Nawab Malik said, “The opposition of the Maha Vikas Aghadi parties to the central agricultural laws is still there. The Maharashtra cabinet had constituted a sub-committee consisting of the Agriculture Minister, Deputy Chief Minister, and other ministers. He prepared the draft by practicing what other states have given to the Center.
Further, he said, “That draft will be placed before the farmers’ organizations of Maharashtra. Suggestions will be taken from them. After making a consensus, if Maharashtra has to make any law, then we will go ahead. In the Legislative Assembly of Maharashtra, we will propose a protest against all the three laws of the Central Government and get it passed.
The Maharashtra unit of the All India Kisan Sangharsh Coordination Committee (AIKSCC) on Saturday urged the state government to clarify its stand on the issue of scrapping of three new agricultural laws by the Centre.
AIKSCC said in a statement that the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government of Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress has extended support to the farmers’ movement and now the fight against these laws has come to a turning point, so the government has to implement these laws in the state assembly. There is a need to adopt a strict and clear stand by passing a resolution against it. The state unit of the farmers organization said that these laws are a step towards privatization of agriculture and the companies have devised a complete strategy to capitalize on this opportunity.
