Farm laws will be repealed when opposition parties speak out in one voice : AAP

Chandigarh, Jul 28 (Agency) Raising the issue of the farm laws in Parliament, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Punjab president and Member of Parliament, Bhagwant Mann on Tuesday, again sought an adjournment of the listed business of the Lok Sabha for a purposeful discussion on what he termed as the black laws.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, Bhagwant Mann while taking a dig at Rahul Gandhi’s comment stating that he had conveyed the message to the Modi government by driving a tractor said, “Not by delivering a symbolic message for one day, the anti-farmer black laws will only be repealed when all the opposition parties will raise a united voice in support of the farmers, inside and outside Parliament, on the streets, Assembly and everywhere; and get on Modi and central government’s nerves.” He said that the Congress should stop pretending and besides other issues, should forcefully raise the matter of the farm laws in Parliament.

Moving the adjournment motion for the sixth consecutive time, Bhagwant Mann stated that for the last eight months, the farmers of the country have been agitating on the borders of Delhi to ensure a withdrawal of the agriculture laws. “Our country is an agricultural country, in such a situation, I urge that all the businesses of Lok Sabha should be postponed and discussion should be held to withdraw all the three agricultural laws,” he stated in the notice of adjournment motion.
