Rajasthan: Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot recently said, "A special session of the Assembly will be convened shortly to bring the desired amendment bill in the interest of farmers". This decision was taken at the Meeting of the Council of Ministers at his residence. The meeting also discussed the impact of three new laws framed by the Central Government on issues relating to farmers of the state. After this discussion, it was decided to bring the desired amendment bill in the interest of the farmers of the state by discussing the impact of the laws enacted by the Government of India in this session, Gehlot said.
He further said, "The Council of Ministers emphasized the necessity of procurement of crops at MSP. It also discussed the restoration of the rights of the civil court for its disposal in case of dispute in the case of farmers' crop purchase by traders. The Council of Ministers is of the view that the system of settlement through the Market Committee or Civil Court of crop purchase disputes in such cases in Rajasthan should remain undone. Further, Gehlot also said, "the Council of Ministers acknowledged that after the enactment of the new agricultural laws, the removal of the ceiling on the stock of various agricultural commodities under normal circumstances cannot be ruled out by increasing black marketing, unauthorized storage and price rise under the Essential Commodities Act. '
