Repeal laws, ensure MSP: Rights body

Ludhiana, February 7

The International Human Rights Organisation (IHRO) has called upon the Centre to repeal the farm laws and bring another legislation to ensure the purchase of all agricultural products at the pre-announced minimum support price (MSP) throughout the country.

In a meeting organised jointly with Gurdwara Sri Guru Singh Sabha, Sarabha Nagar here, the IHRO observed that these farm laws were not in line with the Constitution.

IHRO chairman DS Gill and general secretary Mohindr Singh Grewal said the meeting also demanded adequate compensation for family members of all those who had lost their lives or those who suffered injuries during this farmers’ agitation. The arrested persons must also be released forthwith unconditionally.

“These laws affect not only the farmers, but all sections of society. Therefore, this struggle should not be seen as only for the rights of the farmers but for the welfare of all people,” they said. — OC
