NCP and Shiv Sena move adjournment motion on repealing of farm laws

In a surprise move, the Shiv Sena and NCP that didn’t oppose the new farm laws in Parliament now gave an adjournment motion notice in Lok Sabha on Friday, demanding repealing of three farm laws in view of farmers’ agitation.

The Delhi borders have been witnessing a huge agitation being carried out by farmers, most of them from Punjab and Haryana since November 26 last year. The farmers are protesting against two Farm Bills that the Rajya Sabha recently passed: the Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Bill, 2020, and the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Bill, 2020. The two bills had already cleared the lower house – the Lok Sabha. When they were introduced in the Rajya Sabha, there was ruckus and finally, the Bill was passed through a voice vote.

These bills lay the framework for allowing farmers to sell produce directly to corporate, argues the Centre. Farmers fear that this may be an excuse to pull off the MSP safety net from under their feet. The on-going farmers’ protest in India’s national capital has created quite a flutter globally too.

The Lok Sabha witnessed repeated adjournment on Thursday as Opposition members continued their protest over the new farm laws. With the Lok Sabha witnessing repeated adjournments for the past two days, leaders of different opposition parties met Lok Sabha Speaker and insisted on their demand for a separate discussion on the motion of thanks to the President’s Address and the new farm laws.

NK Premachandran, Revolutionary Socialist Party (RSP) MP also moved adjournment Motion Notice in Lok Sabha demanding discussion on the ongoing farmers’ protest in Delhi borders.

Meanwhile, Saugata Ray, Trinamool Congress (TMC) MP gave an adjournment motion notice in Lok Sabha over alleged repression of farmers by Police with the use of barbed wires, spikes, trenches etc
