All India Kisan Sabha has prepared a draft bill for the Govt for ensuring MSP for farmers, which stresses the setting up of small cooperatives. P Krishna Prasad, Finance Secretary, AIKS says the draft suggests developing a scheme to ensure profit-sharing by private companies that buy and process the produce and also follow the Swaminathan committee recommendation of fixing MSP at 50% above the cost of production. The draft says profit-sharing by sellers will ensure MSP for farmers without adding a burden on the government. Anjali Ojha reports
