Patna: BJP on Tuesday demanded that the Centre
ensure minimum income of farmers considering the three types
of farming prevailing in the country.

Demanding this, party`s Kisan Cell Chairman Om Prakash
Dhanakkar told reporters that the three types were farming for
livelihood, capital intensive farming and commercial farming.

He alleged that the Centre had withheld the hike in
prices of paddy, wheat and other food grains rose through
capital intensive farming and for that cultivators were not
getting appropriate price of their products.

Besides the Centre should also give the status of a
constitutional or legal authority to Agriculture Price
Commission which should adopt a uniform formula for deciding
appropriate prices of food grains with full transparency, he
said.
