New Delhi: After the announcement of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, now the central government has formally taken the first step towards withdrawing all three agricultural laws. The Union Cabinet on Wednesday decided to formally withdraw the agriculture laws. Now the process of withdrawing agricultural laws will be completed in both the houses when the Parliament proceedings begin in the next week. Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Anurag Thakur on Wednesday informed that the Union Cabinet led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has completed the formalities to repeal three agriculture laws.
Addressing the media, Anurag Thakur informed about the decisions taken in the cabinet meeting. He said, 'Today, the Union Cabinet led by the PM completed the formalities to repeal three agriculture laws. It will be our priority to withdraw these three laws during the upcoming session of Parliament.
Let us inform you that earlier Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced on Friday that the Central Government has decided to withdraw all the three agricultural laws. A bill in this regard will be brought in the winter session of Parliament beginning later this month. Along with this, the Prime Minister also announced that the government would constitute a committee to work on a new framework for the Minimum Support Price (MSP).
It is noteworthy that in 2020, the central government had brought these laws. But after the passage of the law, there was fierce opposition to them. The farmers had come out on the streets after the protest by the opposition political parties and they have been sitting on the streets since November 2020. Even after the announcement of withdrawal of laws by the central government, the farmers are sitting on dharna. Now farmers have made MSP the main issue. Farmer leader Rakesh Tikait said that this movement will not end yet. We have a meeting on November 27, after which we will take further decisions.
