Agriculture Minister S Niranjan Reddy demanded the Centre to announce a national agriculture policy for farmers welfare. The Centre should link the employment guarantee scheme with the agriculture sector to help the farmers, he said. The minister accused the Centre of lopsided policies against the farmers facing problems of MSP. Based on crops the state governments have to give MSP to farm produce and the Centre should ease norms and procure paddy and other grains, he said.
