Narendra Modi said three new farm laws had been introduced to empower and strengthen small farmers. He said the laws were a demand of farmers, economists, and agriculturists alike.
As PM Modi mentioned in his special address to the nation, the three laws are for the benefit of farmers, but “we are unable to convince a section of farmers despite our best efforts.” The goal of the three farm laws was to empower farmers, especially small farmers.”, said Modi. PM Modi further said that he would take constitutional measures to repeal these farm laws during the next legislative session.
