Bangla Hunt Desk: Bharat Bhushan Tyagi, a Padma Shri awardee, said those who were returning the award in support of the farmers did not receive the award for their agricultural work. He said that they were doing this only to gain a false reputation. Padma Shri Bharat Bhushan said the new agricultural law needs to be understood bilaterally. He said the new agricultural law would make it possible for middlemen to be enslaved. Bharat Bhushan, a Padma Shri awardee, said there was nothing wrong with the government's intentions with the agricultural law, but the new law would open up new options for farmers.

He said the biggest rumor was that the agricultural market would end, the MSP would be shut down and farmers' land would be taken over through contract farming. This is completely wrong, the government has repeatedly assured that the MSP will continue. The government has also talked about preserving the Goods Act storage. There is no issue of land grabbing in contract farming. It should be understood by the farmers. He appealed to the agitating farmers not to adopt the mentality of conflict during the talks. Because if you adopt the mentality of opposition, there will be no result of the discussion.

He said farmers could not get the full price of the crop through the farmers market. For this reason a meaningful effort was required which is contained in this Act. “Farmers who think they will suffer are wrong,” he said. He said those who are returning the prize in support of the farmers did not get the reward by cultivating. He has taken those people in one hand, who are returning the prize only for the sake of fame.

Bharat Bhushan Tyagi, a progressive farmer who has made a name for himself in organic farming across the country, was awarded the Padma Shri by President Ramnath Kobind in 2019. Bharat Bhushan Tyagi, a resident of Bulandshahr, practiced organic farming himself and encouraged farmers at home and abroad to adopt organic farming. And for this reason he is a very respected person among the farmers. His name is taken with the progressive peasants of the country. Many times his farm has been visited by ministers and senior officials of the administration and information has been gathered about his organic farming.
