Union Cabinet Approves Bill To Repeal 3 Farm Laws Following PM’s Announcement
The Union Cabinet on Wednesday approved a bill to repeal the three controversial agricultural laws following PM Modi’s announcement.
The government has listed the Farm Law Repeal Bill, 2021 in the Lok Sabha during the winter session of Parliament. As a result, all three controversial laws relating to agriculture will be repealed.
- Farmers Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020
- Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement of Price Assurance
- Farm Services Act, 2020 and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020
Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently announced that the government would repeal all three agricultural laws which offended a certain class of farmers and the government failed to persuade them.
The central government has decided to repeal the agricultural laws following a farmers’ agitation that has been going on for almost a year. It is worth noting that violence was erupted while protesting against the law and about 600 farmers were killed throughout the year.
