Sodexo Unlocks a New Consumer Experience with its Deals Platform for Cardholders

Bhopal, Sep 20 (UNI) Describing the agrarian bills passed by Parliament as historic in terms of cultivators’ empowerment, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan averred on Sunday that the development heralds the commencement of an era.
“I express my heartfelt gratitude to Premier Narendra Modi and condemn – in the strongest terms – those opposing the bills plus spreading confusion. The twin proposals for legislation are crucial with regard to enhancing agricultural income, ensuring better value for yield and providing an option for additional earnings to our peasant brethren. Tillers of this state are evincing support for the bills because the krishi upaj mandis will still continue to exist. If the peasant desires to sell his crop outside the mandi, he or she should not be prevented. If a food processor wishes to purchase the produce directly from the farmer, the role of middlemen gets eliminated. If the exporter exports after buying the output directly then why is it an issue for anyone? That is simply beyond comprehension. Mr Modi has constantly been taking decisions in ryots’ interest,” the senior politician was officially quoted as saying.
