The Union Minister of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare, Narendra Singh Tomar, on Sunday said that the Prime Minister had shown historic large-heartedness through his decision to repeal the three farm laws.
“The agricultural laws were introduced for the betterment of farmers. There was opposition from a very small segment of the country. There were many reasons for the protest…which are clear to the country. But, now we are celebrating ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’ to commemorate the 75th anniversary of India’s independence. This year is about fulfilling old resolutions and to move forward with new resolutions. In such an important period, the PM did not find it appropriate that there should be a disagreement in any corner of the country. Hence, displaying large heartedness, [aitihasic badappan dikhaate hue], the PM decided to repeal the farm laws,” said Tomar, who was talking to media persons after attending the national executive meeting of BJP Kisan Morcha in Gurgaon.
