Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday announced that the Centre has decided to repeal all the 3 controversial farm laws that saw widespread protests and requested the protesting farmers to return back to their homes.

This has been almost one year after farmers sat in protest against the three controversial farm laws in Delhi and across the country.

In his address to the nation, PM Modi said the government has formed a committee, comprising Centre, agri experts and farmers, to work on the benefits for the crop growers.

“I shall never stop from doing good work. What I did was for the country, what I will do will be for my country. Trust me, I will work more so that your dreams can come true,” PM Modi said.

Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) leader Rakesh Tikait on Friday said the ongoing anti-farm laws protest will be withdrawn only after the contentious legislations are repealed in Parliament.

Congress leader and former Union finance minister P. Chidambaram tweeted: “What cannot be achieved by democratic protests can be achieved by the fear of impending elections!”

“PM’s announcement on the withdrawal of the three farm laws is not inspired by a change of policy or a change of heart. It is impelled by fear of elections!” he added.

Punjab Congress president Navjot Singh Sidhu said the agitation by the farmers has achieved a historic success.

“Repealing of black laws a step in the right direction …. Satyagrah of Kisan morcha gets historic success…. You’re sacrifice has paid dividends…. Revival of farming in Punjab through a road map should be the top priority for the Pb govt ….accolades,” Sidhu tweeted.
