Congratulations for victory over injustice: Rahul Gandhi tells farmers after PM Modi announces his govt will repeal three farm laws
New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Friday said the Centre's decision to repeal the three farm laws showed how the 'annadatas' (people who provide food to the nation) bowed the 'government's head of arrogance' with Satyagraha.
He 'congratulated' the farmers over their 'victory against injustice'.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday announced the decision to repeal the controversial three farm laws and expressed regret that the government could not make a section of farmers understand the importance of the new laws.
On Gurupurab, the PM announced that the laws would be repealed in the upcoming winter session of the Parliament and urged the farmers who are camping at the borders of Delhi to go back home.
"We have decided to repeal three farm laws. We will finish the process to repeal the law in upcoming Parliament session," PM Modi said.
"I appeal to all farmers, go back to your families, let's make a new start," he said.
The Prime Minister said government could not make a section of farmers understand.
"I want to say, there might have been some shortcoming on our behalf, we could not make some farmers understand. However, on the occasion of Parkash Parv and we are not blaming anyone," he said.
Farmers have been camping at the border of Delhi since November 2020, protesting against the three farm laws.
