Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan and Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Singh have come face to face amid the ongoing controversy over the GI tagging of MP Basmati rice. On Wednesday, the Captain wrote a letter to the Central Government raising questions about Basmati`s GI tagging. Shivraj replied this on Thursday. He asked the captain what hostility the Congress government had with MPs. 

Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan and Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Singh have come face to face amid the ongoing controversy over the GI tagging of MP Basmati rice. On Wednesday, the Captain wrote a letter to the Central Government raising questions about Basmati`s GI tagging. Shivraj replied this on Thursday. He asked the captain what hostility the Congress government had with MPs. 

There are old documents of yield of basmati in MP. Yet opposing GI tags are inappropriate. Shivraj has written a letter to the Prime Minister, seeking intervention in the matter. He said that the matter is not about Madhya Pradesh or Punjab, it is a matter of farmers and their livelihoods.

As far as Pakistan is concerned, the case of the Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority with them has nothing to do with MP`s claims. Because it comes under the GI Act of India and has no connection with the inland claims of basmati rice.
