New Delhi: The Modi government introduced the Agricultural Law Repeal Bill, 2021, in both houses of Parliament on Monday, November 29, and it was passed without debate. Despite the repeal of agricultural laws, Bharatiya Kisan Union National Spokesperson Rakesh Tikait has stated definitely that the farmers' struggle would continue. The government has revoked the rule, according to Trinamool Congress (TMC) MP Mahua Moitra, not for the sake of farmers, but to avoid losing the UP assembly elections.
Mahua Moitra, speaking to the media, stated that the government did not repeal the law because more than 700 farmers died during the protest, but rather because it feared a loss in 60-70 seats in western Uttar Pradesh. He claimed there was no clear image of the government's MSP on the guarantee bill when the farmers' agitation was still going on. The government must take a firm stance on this issue.
MPs from several opposition parties held a demonstration in front of Mahatma Gandhi's monument in Parliament House grounds before the start of the winter session. The Trinamool Congress (TMC), in addition to the Congress, has been involved. There were also anti-government chants. Opposition parties urged that the government talk about the bill withdrawal law and explain why it took so long to remove it.
