Parliament passes Farm Laws Repeal Bill, 2021 

Highlights

  • A bill to repeal three farm laws passed in Lok Sabha, Rajya Sabha within minutes of introduction
  • The bill was passed amid din as Opposition MPs sought to raise the issue of deaths of farmers
  • Repealing of farm laws without discussion shows govt 'terrified': Rahul

Parliament on Monday passed The Farm Laws Repeal Bill, to repeal the three farm laws against which farmers have been protesting for over a year, with its passage in Rajya Sabha. Earlier in the day, Lok Sabha also passed The Farm Laws Repeal Bill, 2021 within minutes of its introduction in the lower House. As soon as Rajya Sabha met in the afternoon, Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar introduced The Farm Laws Repeal Bill, 2021 shortly. Before the motion was adopted for the passage of the bill, Deputy Chairman Harivansh allowed Leader of Opposition Mallikarjun Kharge to speak for two minutes. Kharge was of the view that the government has taken back the three farm laws in view of the forthcoming elections in five states after reviewing the results of recent bypolls. He also mentioned the death of over 700 farmers in more than a year during the agitation against these laws. When Kharge took more than the allocated time, the deputy chairman called Tomar to move the motion. Tomar moved the motion and said while moving the bill for the passage that the three laws were brought for the benefit of farmers. He regretted that the government could not convince the agitating farmers about the benefits of the laws. He also attacked Congress for adopting "double standard" on the laws, as its own election manifesto talked about the need for reforms in the farm sector. He said Prime Minister Narendra Modi showed a large heart by announcing the repeal of the laws on  Guru Nanak Janyanti. He said as both the government and the opposition parties are for repeal of the laws, so there was no need for any discussion on the farm repeal bill. The House passed the bill with a voice vote amid protests by Congress and TMC members. Dola Sen (TMC) and Nadimul Haque (TMC) were in the well to protest the passage of the bill without debate.
