Three farm laws to be repealed: PM Narendra Modi

"We have decided to repeal all 3 farm laws, will begin the procedure at the Parliament session that begins this month," PM Modi said. "I urge farmers to return home to their families and let's start afresh." 

Prime Minsiter Narendra Modi on Friday announced that all three of the Centre’s contentious farm laws will be repealed during the Winter Session. Addressing the nation at 9 am, the prime minister urged the farmers who have been protesting against the laws for over a year now to return home to their families. “Let’s start afresh,” PM Modi said.

“We have decided to repeal all 3 farm laws, will begin the procedure at the Parliament session that begins this month,” PM Modi said. “I urge farmers to return home to their families and let’s start afresh.”

PM Modi said the three laws were for the benefit of farmers but “we couldn’t convince a section of farmers despite our best efforts”. ” The goal of the three farm laws was to empower farmers, especially small farmers,” PM Modi said.
