We have the option of going to court

The MSP is not affected anywhere in this law. We proposed that the state government may also implement the system of private mandis. It was in our work that purchases can be made only with PAN card. We also agree with the concerns of farmers about purchasing with PAN card. If there is a small farmer, it will be a small area, so when he goes to court, he will take time. We have given the option of going to court to resolve it.
