In a special session of the Legislative Assembly, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal tore the new agricultural law made by the Central Government of India. Addressing the central government in the session on Thursday, he said, “Do not be worse than the British.” The Chief Minister of Delhi also wanted to know what is required to implement this law in the midst of an epidemic. This information came from the broadcast media NDTV report.
Thousands of Indian farmers have been protesting in Delhi for 23 days to demand the repeal of an agricultural law passed last September. Although there have already been five rounds of talks between farmers and government representatives, the crisis has not been resolved. The farmers have rejected the government’s proposal to reform the law. They are demanding repeal of the law.
Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said in a special session of the Delhi Assembly on the farmers’ protests, “I am distorting three agricultural laws in this assembly and urging the central government not to do worse than the British.” … The government says that they are not reaching the farmers and are trying to explain the agricultural laws. The Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh told the farmers that their advantage is that their land will not be taken from anyone else. Is this an advantage? ‘
It should be noted that the Government of India recently changed the Agricultural Act to allow corporate farming and purchasing more and more crops from farmers. Corporations will also be able to tell farmers what to do with advance funds. The farmers are of the view that this will harm their interests. They would eventually become slaves to the corporation. This will benefit big companies. Within a few years, their special market in agriculture will be established.
