Three farm laws will be withdrawn, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Friday.
“Maybe something was lacking in our tapasya (efforts), which is why we could not convince some farmers about the laws. But today is Prakash Parv, not the time to blame anyone. Today, I want to tell the country that we have decided to repeal the three farm laws,” PM Modi said in an address to the nation.
“In the Parliament session starting in the end of this month, we will complete the process of repealing the three laws,” he said.
“Whatever I did was for farmers. What I am doing is for the country.”
“We haven’t been able to convince farmers. Only a section of them was opposing the laws, but we kept trying to educate and inform them,” PM Modi said.
