 Speaking to reporters, CITU affiliated Tamil Nadu Farmers Association’s general secretary P Shanmugam demanded that Chief Minister resign and tender an apology to farmers. There would be no food security for the people and corporates could seriously affect the farm sector if these new laws were implemented, he alleged. “In these bills that have been passed, there is no mention of minimum support price or procurement by the government. If the government does not buy, there will be no public distribution system outlets in the country and if there are no PDS shops, the poor and ordinary people will not get food grains grains at reduced prices,” Shanmugham, also a state secretariat member of the CPM, said.
