Lok Sabha passes Farm Laws Repeal Bill amid Opposition ruckus


By Online Desk

As soon as the Lok Sabha resumed its session, after a brief ajournment, the Centre passed the Farm Laws Repeal Bill, 2021 despite ruckus by Opposition MPs.

The Bill tabled by Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar was passed on Monday afternoon within minutes of its introduction.

This came despite Leader of Congress Party in Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury demanding a  discussion on the Bill in the House.

Earlier on Monday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said his government would answer all questions and debate matters of national interest in the winter session of Parliament.

Soon after the Farm Laws Repeal Bill was passed, the Lok Sabha was adjourned for the second time till 2.00 pm.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the repealing of the three contentious Central farm laws on the day of Guru Nanak Jayanti ie, November 19.

The government has indicated that the bill to repeal three farm laws will also be taken up on priority. The bill was cleared by the Union Cabinet last week.
