New Delhi: Modi government introduced 3 Agriculture bills in the parliament which has been passed in the Lok Sabha. Several opposition parties from the Congress are openly criticizing the government's decision. Meanwhile, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal has also urged opposition parties to oppose the bill in the Rajya Sabha and not to stage a walkout.
In a tweet from his official Twitter handle, Delhi CM Kejriwal said, "The three bills of the Centre will leave the farmers for exploitation by big companies. I beg all my non-BJP parties to come together in the Rajya Sabha and oppose these bills, ensure that all your MPs are present and do not walk out. The farmers of the entire country are watching you".
Two agriculture bills have been passed in the Lok Sabha, but it is yet to be passed in the Rajya Sabha and the BJP does not have a single majority in the Rajya Sabha. The opposition is looking at an opportunity in the upper house. Akali Dal leader Harsimrat Kaur has resigned from the Modi government in protest against the bill. The Akali Dal is calling the bill anti-farmer. However, she will continue to support NDA.
