No plan to bring back Farm Laws, clarifies Minister Tomar

No plan to bring back Farm Laws, clarifies Minister Tomar

New Delhi, Dec 26 (UNI) Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Minister Narendra Singh Tomar on Sunday clarified that the government had no proposal to bring back the Farm Laws.
In a statement issued here, the Minister blamed the Congress for spreading rumours to hide its own failures.
In a statement issued a day after he said in Nagpur that the government has only taken one step backward and it will move ahead.
Tomar clarified in a statement that the government has no proposal or idea to bring back the Farm Laws. He said Prime Minister Narendra Modi decided to withdraw the Laws as a mark of respect for farmers.
The Minister said Central Government under the leadership of PM Modi has taken several historic steps in the last seven and a half years for the welfare of farmers. He also mentioned the PM Kisan Samman Nidhi, and other programs related to farmers.
The Minister also said that the report of the Swaminathan Committee came in 2006 but the then Congress government did not implement it.
"Under the leadership of PM Modi, the recommendations have been implemented in the interest of the farmers," Tomar said.
The Minister blamed Congress for spreading rumors.
"Congress is constantly trying to spread rumors to hide its failures, the farmers should be cautious of this," Tomar said.
Parliament in its tumultuous Winter Session that concluded a day ahead of the designated December 23, had repealed the original Farm laws of September 2020, which were called black laws by the farming community and protested for over a year (from November 26, 2020 to December 8, 2021).
The Congress had on Saturday accused the Narendra Modi led government of "hatching conspiracy" and egging to bring back the contentious laws through 'back-door' following Tomar's comments.
