Modi Announces To Withdraw Three Controversial Farm Laws

Syed Khalique Ahmed

NEW DELHI—Faced with strong opposition from the farming community all over the country for the last one year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced to withdraw all the three controversial farm laws on Friday morning.

He made the announcement in a special speech that he also shared through tweets from his official Twitter handle.

“Aaj main aapko, poore desh ko, batane aaya hoon ki humne teeno Krishi Kanoono ko vapas lene ka nirnay liya hai.” (I want to inform you today that I have decided to withdraw all the three farm laws), he tweeted.

Farmers led by Samyukt Kisan Morcha had been running an agitation for the last one year seeking withdrawal of the three laws. A large number of farmers had been camping on the borders of Delhi in Haryana and Western Uttar Pradesh, demanding that the three laws be taken back.

Farmers had been saying that the three laws were against farmers as also consumers. They had been arguing that the laws would benefit only the corporates.

While the government was adamant about not taking back the laws, the farmers continued with their protest.

UP elections due in February 2022 seem to be the motivating factor for Modi to drop the laws. Farmers, particularly in Western Uttar Pradesh, are up in arms against the BJP.

Modi government had not withdrawn any of the actions it had taken since Modi became PM in 2014. However, this is the first time that Modi has taken back his own decision. This indicates that the political atmosphere in the country, particularly in the agricultural and rural segments, has gone against BJP.

Whatever may be the reason for Modi to announce dropping the three laws, today’s development is the beginning of the downfall of Modi and BJP in the country.
