He held a meeting with representatives of farmer organizations including Union Minister Piyush Goyal, Arjun Munda, Nityanand Rai.

After the meeting, Chief Minister Ma said that the issue of import of pulses from Mozambique and Colombia was raised in the meeting. This import is worth more than 2 billion dollars. If minimum support price is given on pulses, Punjab can be at the forefront in pulses production.
