On Monday, Lok Sabha passed the bill to withdraw the three farm laws, which is a major achievement for farmers. The Farmers had protested for almost a year demanding withdrawal of the three central farm laws.

Referring to the issue, BKU leader Rakesh Tikait voiced, “This (Farm Laws Repeal Bill, 2021 passed by Lok Sabha) is a tribute to all 750 farmers who lost their lives during the agitation. The protest will continue as other issues including MSP are still pending.”

The bill, meant to revoke the three central farm laws was initiated by agriculture minister Narendra Singh Tomar as the opposition member urged for the discussions on the bill. Successively, the bill will now be taken up by the Rajya Sabha.

On November 19, Prime Minister Narendra Modi disclosed that the three farm laws will be withdrawn. He demanded the farmers to suspend the protest to conclude the agitations and return back to their homes and fields.

The BKU leader added that with the solutions found for the three farm laws, the centre should voice the damage that has been done in the last year. He mentioned, “The issue will not end if the Centre wants to settle the matter with deceitful, false statements.”

On the other hand, opposition parties, together with Congress, have asked for a debate on the bill. Regarding this, the Lok Sabha speaker Om Birla remarked that it can happen only when there is order in the House.
