Lately, the farm bills that were brought in the session by the Modi government have faced a lot of criticism and backlash from the opposition. According to the opposition leaders, the farm bills that have been passed will create a problem for the farmers. However, these farm bills aim to bring relief to the farmers of the middlemen, who take a big chunk of the farmer’s money and further pass it on to the MLAs.
Times Now spoke to few agents in Punjab who stated that how the inspectors take bribe from all the local farmers and if anyone questions as to why they have to pay the bribe, there is a probable chance that his produce will not be picked up and will be left in mandi itself to rot. The farmers also say that this nexus of inspectors taking bribe involves high officials as well, since they appoint those inspectors only who will bring them bribe.
