Nagpur: Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar said that the three farm laws — which were withdrawn by the government last month following nationwide protests by lakhs of farmers — could well be re-introduced at a later date. The union minister said this at an event in Maharashtra on Friday.
Tomar put the blame on “some people” for the scrapping of the controversial laws.
“We brought the agriculture amendment laws. But some people did not like these laws, which, after 70 years after Independence, were a big reform under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s leadership,” the Agriculture Minister was quoted as saying by news agency PTI.
“But the government is not disappointed… we moved a step back and we will move forward again because farmers are India’s backbone,” Tomar said, reported the agency.
