Farm Laws Repeal Act 2021 gets assent from President Ram Nath Kovind


New Delhi, Dec 1 (IANS): President Ram Nath Kovind on Wednesday gave his assent to the Farm Laws Repeal Act 2021 that was passed by both houses of Parliament by voice vote on Monday.

First, the Lok Sabha and then the Rajya Sabha passed The Farm Laws Repeal Bill 2021 by voice vote sans a debate amid heavy sloganeering by the opposition that wanted a discussion on the issue. In both the houses, the Bill was passed within minutes of introduction by the government.

The three bills that Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced to repeal on November 19 are: Farmers' Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Bill, 2020, Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Bill, 2020 and Essential Commodities (Amendment) Bill 2020.

Farmers across the country under the Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM) banner had been agitating since last one year demanding repeal of the three farm laws and legalising minimum support price (MSP) among other issues.

    Vishnu bhat, bangalore, u rightly said- rubber stamp. did not question when sent initially for approval, did not do now when repealed. what sort of a role model for the nation? learnt nothing from APJ Kalam. We know that there was already uproar when the bill was passed and sent for President's signature. There was provision for the President to hold them on and bring to government's attention asking them to be reconsidered. If the President signs bills even before they are sent, that is a tragedy.

    I have a very simple and straightforward question: Does the president have any choice not to sign anything that is decided or passed by the ruling party ???

    A good move by the Punjab Arminder Govt .The congress has failed to provide strong opposition. If congress thinks there can be no opposition to BJP without congress, they are living in the past. Delhi and Bengal has proved that there can be very strong opposition to BJP even without congress. Before you ask, Yes, I am a JDS affiliate.

    Reform in laws dealing with farmers is the need of the hour. Farmers in India have been shackled by the aristocrats of Socialist India who consider farmers to be their slaves who will farm and provide them with food. George Orwell’s –Animal Farm. Unfortunately, most people have been brainwashed by 75 years of socialism. The only way to overcome this is to educate oneself and see, hear and read stories from the other side.Farmers deserve to be set free from this bondage. Farmers are entrepreneurs just like all others. Farmers are not beggars. Set farmers free and let them choose what is good for them. Under the current system more farmers(not the big-time farmers) will commit suicide due to loans and more farmers will remain poor and get poorer. The fault of the present govt. is that they went ahead without consultation in a democratic manner. To those who wish to know the other side of the story, I recommend : (1) Shri Sharad Joshi’s recommended reforms https://www.downtoearth.org.in/interviews/agriculture/indian-farmers-can-take-on-the-multinationals-30342 (2) Shri Amar Habib of Kisan Putra Andolan. They have a website and Twitter. His book on anti-farmer laws in English or Hindi may be downloaded from https://www.sabhlokcity.com/2018/11/amar-habibs-anti-farmer-laws-book-now-in-hindi-download/ (3) Shetkari Sanghatana(founded by Shri Sharad Joshi) – Views of Shri Anil Ghanwat and Shri Lalit Bahale may be searched and read.

    The matter is of utmost shame. How even the bills were approved by the President, when several bodies submitted written appeal to refrain from it ?? Is this a reson to celebrate ?? That too when 700 plus farmers perished protesting against the Bill ?? India doesn't seem to be democratic, it's absolutely autocratic !
