Opposition urges PM Modi to repeal farm laws, says laws withdrawn during British rule too

The Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad on Wednesday urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to withdraw the three contentious farm laws that triggered a massive protest by farmers across the country. During a debate on the farm legislations, Azad voiced the united stand of the opposition and said the British too had once repealed a farm law ruling its rule.

The farmers protest is being discussed in the parliament in a 15-hour-slot after the government had agreed to it. The discussion is taking place in the Rajya Sabha where the question hour is suspended for two days. The 16 opposition parties had demanded a 5-hour-long discussion on the farmers protest, which the government had agreed to increase to 15 hours.

During the discussion, Azad condemned the unprecedented violence in the national capital on Republic Day adding that strict actions should be taken against the culprits. A tractor rally organised by farmers to symbolize their protests and strengthen their demand of repealing the laws had turned rogue on Republic day that caused the death of one protester and left 300 police personnel injured.
