After the approval of the cabinet, the proposal to withdraw the law will be passed in both the houses in the winter session of Parliament. After this, all the three agricultural laws, which became the reason for the farmers' movement, will be abolished.
In his address to the nation on Friday, Prime Minister Modi had announced to withdraw all three agricultural laws. He had said that the government had brought this law in the interest of farmers with a good intention, but we failed to convince some farmers. The Prime Minister said that the process of withdrawing the laws would be initiated in the next Parliament session. At the same time, according to experts, this process can be completed in at least 3 days after the commencement of the Parliament session. The Parliament session is to begin from November 29.
