The Kerala Legislative Assembly has passed a resolution demanding the repeal of three new agricultural laws. Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Bijayan on Thursday raised a motion in the Assembly against the Centre’s three new agriculture laws and targeted the BJP’s NDA government. The proposal was presented at a special one-hour session calling on farmers to discuss their problems and show solidarity with them. Vijayan, while presenting the proposal, demanded immediate repeal of the new laws, saying the country had witnessed one of the most impressive protests in the history of farmers so far. He complained that the Centre’s agricultural laws were “anti-farmer” and “beneficial to the corporate”.
After discussions with the farmers, the Minister of Agriculture said – agreed on two issues: 10 issues
Vijayan said at least 32 farmers had lost their lives in the 35 days of protests. “When people are concerned about anything that affects their lives, it is the responsibility of the legislature to take it seriously,” he said. He said the Center should adopt this controversial law at a time when agriculture is already facing challenges and so farmers are worried that they will also lose the price of the current support price.
