I only wish the Prime Minister would have taken the decision when Akali Dal had raised the issue at the time of enactment of these Farm Laws. A lot would have been different then; Sukhbir Singh Badal

Wholeheartedly welcome the decision on repeal of 3 farming Black Laws.

Akali Dal is particularly grateful that Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s Parkash Purab was chosen to announce it.

I hope this decision unites the nation, which has seen much temper due to the protests.

I only wish the Prime Minister would have taken the decision when Akali Dal had raised the issue at the time of enactment of these Farm Laws.

A lot would have been different then.

Now I urge PM to take it forward by withdrawing the cases against farmers.

Today I have come to tell you, the whole country, that we have decided to withdraw all three agricultural laws. In the Parliament session starting later this month, we will complete the constitutional process to repeal these three agricultural laws: PM Narendra Modi

Prime Minister’s Office:

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi addressed the Nation today through video conference.

Addressing the nation, the Prime Minister wished the people on the occasion of Guru Nanak Jayanti. He also expressed happiness that after a gap of one and a half years, the Kartarpur Sabih Corridor has now reopened.

The Prime Minister said “I have seen the challenges of the farmers very closely in my five decades of public life, that is why, when I was given the opportunity to serve the country as Prime Minister in 2014, we gave the highest priority to agriculture development and  farmer welfare”.

The Prime Minister said that four prong measures of seeds, insurance, market and savings were taken to ameliorate the conditions of farmers. 

Along with good quality seeds, the government also connected the farmers with facilities like neem coated urea, soil health card and micro irrigation, he said.

The Prime Minister pointed out that many initiatives have been taken for the farmers to get the right price for their produce in return for their hard work. The country has strengthened its rural market infrastructure. “We not only increased the MSP, but also created a record number of government procurement centers. The procurement of the produce made by our government has broken the records of the last several decades”, he said.

The Prime Minister said in this great campaign to improve the condition of the farmers, three agricultural laws were brought in the country. The objective was that the farmers of the country, especially small farmers should be strengthened, they should get the right price for their produce and maximum options to sell the produce.

The Prime Minister said for years, farmers of the country, agricultural experts of the country and farmers’ organizations of the country were continuously making this demand. Earlier also many governments had brainstormed on this. This time also there was discussion in Parliament, brainstorming took place and these laws were brought up. In every nook and corner of the country, many farmers’ organizations welcomed and supported it. The Prime Minister expressed his gratitude to the organizations, farmers and individuals who supported the move. .

The Prime Minister said that the Government brought these laws for the welfare of farmers, specially small farmers, in the interest of the agriculture sector, for a bright future of ‘gaanv-gareeb’ – village-poor, with full integrity, clear conscience and dedication towards farmers.

He continued, “such a sacred thing, absolutely pure, a matter of farmers’ interest, we could not explain to some farmers despite our efforts. Agricultural economists, scientists, progressive farmers also tried their best to make them understand the importance of agricultural laws”. 

The Prime Minister said “today I have come to tell you, the whole country, that we have decided to withdraw all three agricultural laws. In the Parliament session starting later this month, we will complete the constitutional process to repeal these three agricultural laws”.

In the spirit of holy Gurupurab the Prime Minister said that today is not the day for blaming anyone and rededicated himself to working for the welfare of the farmers. He announced an important initiative for the agriculture sector.

He announced the formation of a committee to promote zero budgeting based agriculture, to change crop pattern as per the changing needs of the country and to make MSP more effective and transparent. The Committee will have representatives of the central government, state governments, farmers, agricultural scientists, and agricultural economists.

A great victory for the farmers and for the Congress party which was unwavering in its opposition to the farm laws: P Chidambaram

P Chidambaram – Former Union Finance Minister:

What cannot be achieved by democratic protests can be achieved by the fear of impending elections!

PM’s announcement on the withdrawal of the three farm laws is not inspired by a change of policy or a change of heart. It is impelled by fear of elections!

Anyway, it is a great victory for the farmers and for the Congress party which was unwavering in its opposition to the farm laws

Today I want to tell the whole country that we have decided to repeal all the three farm laws : PM Narendra Modi
