New Delhi: The Union Cabinet led by PM Narendra Modi completed formalities on Wednesday to repeal the three farm laws which faced stiff resistance by farmer unions for a year.
Union Minister Anurag Thakur said, "During the upcoming session of the Parliament, it will be our priority to take back these three laws".
On November 19, PM Modi, on the occasion of Guru Nanak Jayanti, announced the repeal of all three controversial agricultural laws. The prime minister assured that in the Winter Session session starting later this month, the union government will complete the constitutional process to repeal these three agricultural laws.
The Prime Minister said that the Government brought these laws for the welfare of farmers, especially small farmers, in the interest of the agriculture sector, for a bright future of ‘gaanv-gareeb’ - village-poor, with full integrity, clear conscience and dedication towards farmers. He also said, “such a sacred thing, absolutely pure, a matter of farmers' interest, we could not explain to some farmers despite our efforts. Agricultural economists, scientists, progressive farmers also tried their best to make them understand the importance of agricultural laws”
The Supreme Court had stayed the implementation of three farm laws after several rounds of talks between the government and farmer unions failed to end the protests.
