MODI GOVT SCRAPPED 1,200 ACTS, WHY HITCH TO REPEAL ANTI-FARMER LAWS
1,200 LAWS ALREADY SCRAPPED; 1,824 MORE IDENTIFIED
Narendra Modi Government has scrapped record 1200 Acts, since 2014 and 1,824 more have already been identified for repeal as per the statement of the Union Law Minister Mr. Ravi Shankar Prasad, than where is the difficulty to repeal three anti-farmers laws, enacted recently for the benefit of the big corporate, against the fundamental interests of the farmers.
Narendra Modi dispensation at the center has removed 2014 bizarre archaic laws from the statutes in the past six years, I wonder as to why the central Government is obstinately sticking to retain anti-farmer laws. The hopelessly ineffective and unproductive protracted dialogue between the farmer’s unions and the central Government’s interlocutors, so far has shown no positive sign, demonstrating the resolution of the vexed tangle to the satisfaction of the farmers. If the Modi Government is obdurate to destroy the farming and the farmers in India and prepared for all hell to break loose against the farmers then farmer unions should also carefully draw their long term strategy to break the impasse. In view of the inflexible and downbeat attitude of the Government I am not at all optimistic that the proposed meeting on 8th January would yield any positive result.
Mr. Narendra Modi has brought these anti-farmer laws with a firm resolve to hand over the entire Agriculture Sector including the entire food grain trade to the corporate Houses of Adanis and Ambanis . If it’s a long term package and a done deal between him and the corporate, then why engage the agitating farmers in superfluous and hollow talks?
The Government of India is making fools of the farmers of the Country which ultimately would prove counterproductive having far-reaching consequences for the peace and tranquility of the country for which Mr. Modi and the BJP shall be squarely blamed.
The agitating farmers have shown maximum restraint to preserve peace and exemplary discipline, despite odds of facing the horrendous eventualities. To maintain Peace and tranquility is the shared responsibility of all stakeholders including the Government, but if at all the pent up patience of the farmer’s explodes and the peaceful movement goes out of hand of its leaders, then for any negative fallout; the buck would stop at the door of Mr. Narendra Modi and the BJP.
