Mandis will not be closed: Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad
Meanwhile, Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad has tweeted that the mandis will not be closed across the country. He has tweeted- ‘New agricultural laws do not abolish APMC mandis. The mandis will continue to operate as before. The new law has given farmers the freedom to sell their crops anywhere. Whoever gives the best price to the farmers will be able to buy the crop whether it is in the market or outside the market. #FarmBills’
नए कृषि कानून APMC मंडियों को समाप्त नहीं करते हैं। मंडियाँ पहले की तरह ही चलती रहेंगी। नए कानून ने किसानों को अपनी फसल कहीं भी बेचने की आज़ादी दी है। जो भी किसानों को सबसे अच्छा दाम देगा वो फसल खरीद पायेगा चाहे वो मंडी में हो या मंडी के बाहर। #FarmBills pic.twitter.com/xRi35CkOTs
