Reacting to Friday’s announcement of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to repeal of the farm laws, Mishra said: “The government tried to explain to farmers the pros of farm laws. But they were adamant about repeal. The government felt that it should be taken back and re-drafted later if needed but right now they should repeal as farmers are demanding.”
BJP MP Sakshi Maharaj, meanwhile, said that the “bills (farm laws) have got nothing to do with polls. For Prime Minister, the nation comes first. Bills come, they are repealed, they can come back, they can be re-drafted”.
RLD president Jayant Chaudhary has already warned farmers that the laws would be brought back after the polls.
