It is known that Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced that the centre will be repealing the three contentious farm laws that sparked massive protests at Delhi borders. The Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister on Wednesday gave its nod for the withdrawal of the three farm laws.
“Today, the Union Cabinet led by PM Modi completed formalities to repeal the three farm laws. During the upcoming session of the Parliament, it will be our priority to take back these three laws,” Union I&B Minister Anurag Thakur said at a press conference after the Cabinet meeting.
The three laws to be repealed are: Farmer’s Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act; The Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement of Price Assurance and Farm Services Act; and The Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act.
Meanwhile, the farmers have declared that they will not stop their protests at the Delhi borders until the Centre formally repealed the laws in Parliament.
