It happened for the first time that three laws were passed without a vote in Rajya Sabha … With this I tear 3 agricultural laws in this assembly and appeal center not to become worse than the British “, said the prime minister of Delhi. according to the news agency ANI.
Kejriwal also questioned the BJP-led government about how many more sacrifices agitated farmers would have to make to make their voices heard.
“Every farmer has become Bhagat Singh. The government is saying they are reaching out to farmers and trying to explain the benefits of agricultural bills. UP CM told the farmers that they will benefit from these bills as their land will not be taken away. Is it an advantage? ” He added.
