They have also been directed to hold an extensive discussion on agriculture laws with leaders from farmers communities and organisations.
The party also plans to hold press conferences in each district discussing agriculture sector reforms through the media. The BJP also proposes to put up hoardings at prominent places to publicise agriculture sector reforms and thanking the Prime Minister for implementing the new laws.
The BJP has asked its leaders to work on "negating the false notion of opposition through social media and on agro platforms". To achieve this Kisan morcha along with other morchas of the party should work closely and reach out to the farming community. The party has also asked its leaders to conduct door to door contact programmes in an effort to dispel any doubts about the new laws.

Agricultural Produce Market Committee (APMC) will continue to function while giving freedom to farmers to operate beyond the government set up. Alternative free market access will result in huge investment in the agriculture sector," stated the communication. (ANI)
