New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said on Monday that repealing the three farm laws without debate shows the government is “terrified” to have a discussion and knows it has done something wrong.
After parliament passed the “Farm Law Repeal Bill” to repeal the three contentious farm laws that farmers have been protesting against for more than a year, Gandhi told reporters his party predicted that the government will have to withdraw farm laws because it knew that the “power of three-four crony capitalists cannot resist the strength of farmers and workers”.
He said repealing the laws is a success for the farmers and also for the country.
“What is unfortunate is the way the bills were repealed, without any discussion, without any conversation. We wanted to have a discussion of the forces behind these bills because these bills don’t just reflect the prime minister’s point of view, these bills reflect the forces behind the prime minister and that’s what we wanted to discuss, ”Gandhi said.
“We wanted to discuss the MSP (problem), we wanted to discuss the Lakhimpur Kheri incident, we wanted to discuss the 700 farmers who died in this unrest and unfortunately this discussion was not allowed,” the elder said. head of Congress.
This is a reflection of the fact that this government is “terrified” of having these discussions and “wants to hide”.
What is Parliament for if discussions are not allowed, he said.
