Modi’s false promises on Minimum Support Price exposed
Union Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh again misled the country by making a completely false statement by claiming that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had never promised to offer a minimum support price to farmers but had instead promised to give a profit of 50% profit to farmers on the production cost. Not only is this a completely false statement but the minister also did not clarify how the farmers can gain a profit of 50% without having an MSP in place.
