Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday stated that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s decision to repeal the three farms legal guidelines confirmed his sensitivity in direction of the welfare of farmers.
“Today Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the interest of farmers and respecting their sentiments has taken a big decision to withdraw three agriculture laws. This decision reveals the sensitivity of the Prime Minister towards the welfare of farmers. I welcome this decision of the Prime Minister,” stated Mr Singh in a tweet.
Earlier at this time, Prime Minister Narendra Modi introduced that the federal government has determined to repeal the three farm laws.
Apologising to the countrymen for the three farm legal guidelines over which the federal government “failed to convince” the farmers, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday urged the protesting farmers to return to their properties.
In the tackle to the nation, PM Modi stated, “We have decided to repeal all three farm laws, will begin the procedure at the Parliament session that begins this month. I urge farmers to return home to their families and let’s start afresh.”
Hundreds of farmers have been protesting on the three Delhi borders since November 2020 with the demand that the federal government repeal the Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020; Farmers’ (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020; and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.
