LIVE: PM Modi repeals three farm laws

IBNS | @indiablooms | 19 Nov 2021, 11:38 am

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday announced the repeal of three controversial farm laws that had triggered massive protests by the peasants. The new laws, which was controversially enacted amid COVID-19 pandemic, would have facilitated the farmers to sell their produce beyond the regulated wholesale market. However, farmers mostly from Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh, who camped in and around Delhi for almost a year as a protest, fear they would be left at the mercy of the private players once the laws are enforced.
