    INCREASE MSP BEFORE CARRYING OUT 7TH PAY PANEL RECOMMENDATIONS

    ‘Centre has no right to hike salaries of only one section of society while farmers’ incomes continue to be low’

    About 60 farmers’ associations in the country have demanded that the Centre put on hold the implementation of the 7th pay commission recommendations till it executes the pre-poll promise of ensuring that farmers get 50 per cent of profits in minimum support prices (MSP) over cost of cultivation.

    A resolution to this effect was adopted at a national-level convention of ‘Kisan Ekta’, a newly-formed confederation of farmers’ associations, in Bengaluru on Wednesday, according to Food and Agricultural Policy Analyst Devinder Sharma, who played a key role in bringing these farmers’ organisations together.
