Farmers defer March to Parliament…
Farmers postponed the sansad chalo or march to parliament which was scheduled on 29 November.
Addressing a press conference, Farmer leader Darshan Pal Singh said, ” Samyukt Kisan Morcha decided to postpone the proposed tractor rally to Parliament on 29 November.”
The tractor rally was scheduled to pressurize the Modi government into deciding a statutory guarantee of minimum support price (MSP) for crops among other things.
The bill has been listed for introduction and passage in Lok Sabha on the first day of the Winter Session of Parliament on Monday. It is among 26 new bills on the agenda of the government.
Also, the bill was passed by the Union Cabinet after Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s announcement to withdraw the three farm laws in the Winter Session.
The Farm Laws Repeal Bill, 2021 seeks to repeal the Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020, the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement of Price Assurance, Farm Services Act, 2020, and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.
