VIJAYAWADA: Stating that there are serious concerns among the farming community on the Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Bill, 2020 and the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement of Price Assurance and Farm Services Bill, 2020, TDP Rajya Sabha MP Kanakamedala Ravindra Kumar has appealed to the Centre to clarify the  doubts of farmers. 

Since there are no restrictions in storing  the agriculture products by the corporate sector, they may store the entire stock and can control the demand-supply system for more profit, the TDP MP said and felt that such a scenario will damage the interests of both the farmers and consumers.
