New Delhi: In a huge move today morning, PM Narendra Modi addressed the nation on the eve of GuruParv and announced the repeal of the 3 farm laws. He also apologized to Nation for the inconvenience caused due to the protests.
While addressing the nation, PM Modi said, “Today, I have come to tell you and the whole country, that we have decided to repeal all three farm laws. In the ensuring you the next Parliament session that begins later this month, we will complete the constitutional process to repeal these three farm laws.”
He added with a tone of discernment with the farmers. Saying, it was his mistake he missed the farmer’s sentiments. “I want to say with a sincere and pure heart that perhaps there must have been some deficiency in our efforts, due to which we could not explain the truth like the light of the lamp to some farmers. It’s better to call these laws away”
There was a major signal of a serious rethink on the issue of the farmer’s bill as there was no mention in the resolution adopted by leaders in the executive meeting a few days ago.
The Prime Minister chose the occasion of Guru Nanak Jayanti to announce the repeal of the three laws. These laws were the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement of Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, the Farmers Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act 2020.
This is the second time PM Modi and the Central government have moved back in terms of Reforms. Earlier was in 2015, when there was anguish by opposition on the Land Acquisition Act.
