Kaushambi (Uttar Pradesh): Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) leader Rakesh Tikait on Monday said farmers will not leave the protest site unless a discussion on Minimum Support Price (MSP) and other issues are held. “The government wants that there should be no protests in the country but we will not leave the protest site before any discussion on MSP including other issues,” Tikait told media persons.

Asked about the passing of the Farm Laws Repeal Bill, 2021 in Lok Sabha, the BKU leader said, “It is a tribute to all 750 farmers who lost their lives during the agitation. The protest will continue as other issues including MSP are still pending.” The ‘Farm Laws Repeal Bill 2021’ was passed by the Lok Sabha today on the first day of the winter session of Parliament.

Soon after the Parliament’s winter session commenced today, the Lok Sabha was adjourned till 12 noon following sloganeering by the Opposition members. After the Lower House resumed, Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar tabled the ‘Farm Laws Repeal Bill, 2021. The Bill was then passed in the House amid ruckus by Opposition MPs.

The bill to repeal the three farm laws will be brought in Rajya Sabha on Monday itself, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi said. He also urged the opposition to allow the passage of the bill without any “ruckus and disturbance” in the Upper House. “We want to give a message to the farmers across the country,” he said.

In an address to the nation on November 19, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the repealing of the three Central farm laws on the day of Guru Nanak Jayanti. The bill was cleared by the Union Cabinet last week.
