Farmers camping at Delhi’s outskirts since November 2020 with their claims that the Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce Act, 2020. Farmers’ (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020. And the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020 retract and a new law made to guarantee minimum support price for crops.
Before the session, AIKSCC demanded that Uddhav Thackeray’s government repeal the central law altogether making changes will not help farmers.
Making changes in clauses in controversy farm laws will not reverse pro-corporate, anti-farmer objectives behind the decreeing of these laws. SKM and AIKSCC adopted assertion for the repeal of the laws, rather than merely urging minor changes in the provisions.
Sources stated that a resolution requesting three crore antibodies every month from the Centre may sanctioned on Tuesday. Maharashtra can inoculate 10 lakh to 14 lakh individuals on a daily basis, maximum in the state is eight lakh. Even as the state has immunized the highest number of people nationally.
Maharashtra can immunize its population at the earliest to bring about herd immunity, but require doses from the Centre, sources added. The resolution lead to rising stress between the government and the opposition, a day after the postponement of 12 MLAs tensed the situation.
The legislators discontinued from the assembly for a year for supposedly misbehaving with presiding officer Bhaskar Jadhav in the Speaker’s chamber. They later met Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari requesting his mediation and complained against the MVA government for “infringing upon democracy”. Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut stated that indiscipline cannot be endured.
In the morning, BJP MLAs were seen presenting a protest at the state assembly in Mumbai against discontinuation of its legislators and OBC reservation issue.
The Maharashtra Legislative Assembly on Monday issued a resolution requesting the Centre to supply the 2011 census data to empower the State Backward Class Commission to prepare a pragmatic data of the OBC population, in an offer to restore political reservations for its members in local bodies.
The Apex Court earlier this year repressed quota for the Other Backward Classes (OBCs) in local bodies after seeing that the total number of seats earmarked for different citizenries, including the SCs and STs, should not surpass 50 per cent of its total strength.
Earlier on Monday, Fadnavis stated the SC had urged for an empirical inquiry (into the issue of OBCs population) through the State Backward Class Commission. “The top court has not asked for census data. The intention is time pass, face saver and misleading, and will not yield anything. But, we will aid the resolution as we desire to stand by the OBCs,” the BJP leader said.
