Will the effect of the farmers’ movement be seen?
Impact of farmer’s protest
Thousands of farmers have been staging a sit-in on the borders of Delhi for a year against the three controversial agricultural laws. The government has announced the withdrawal of all three laws a few days ago, and now a bill to withdraw them is being introduced in Parliament.
Although the government has said in the bill, ‘Although only a small group of farmers are opposing them, the need of the hour is to take everyone along for inclusive development.
The decision to withdraw all three laws due to farmers’ agitation is one of the biggest decisions of the Modi government in the last year. Prime Minister Modi had always been advocating these laws and the government had been saying that they can be changed but they will not be withdrawn.
But now the government has backtracked. Despite this, the farmers have not yet backed down from the movement. Farmers’ organizations say that they will continue their demand for a minimum support price.
The farmers are adamant the opposition will not leave any opportunity to surround the government on the issue of farmers in Parliament.
Congress has demanded from the government that tribute should be paid to the farmers who lost their lives in the agitation in Parliament.
