Mamata lauds suspended oppn MPs, seeks 'greater alliance' for fight against farm bills


Kolkata, Sep 21: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday alleged that the two farm bills passed in Rajya Sabha would deprive farmers of minimum support price (MSP) and will lead to famine in the country.

All opposition parties should come together and fight these bills tooth and nail, said Banerjee who is also the Trinamool Congress supremo.

"Even as the country is reeling under COVID-19 pandemic, the Centre is trying to create famine through these farm bills," she claimed while addressing a press conference.

"The Centre has done nothing to control the price rise of essential commodities. It is bulldozing these two anti-farmer legislations. These bills will lead to food crisis as farmers will not get MSP," Banerjee said.
