Prime Minister Narendra Modi stated today that the Centre has decided to repeal three controversial farm rules, including one at Delhi’s Singhu border, which sparked widespread demonstrations.
“Trust me, I will work even harder to make your aspirations a reality,” PM Modi stated, adding that they are working to change the crop pattern.
The statement was made during the Guru Purab festival, which commemorates the birthday of Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikhism.
“Maybe something was lacking in our Tapasya, which is why we could not convince some farmers about the laws. But today is Prakash Parv, not the time to blame anyone.
Since November 2020, tens of thousands of farmers from Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, and Rajasthan are camping outside Delhi. They want that the regulations to repeal.
Moreover, farmer unions believe that the legislation would put them in unfair competition with corporations and take away their guaranteed income.
