Politicians and framer unions have welcomed the prime minister’s decision. 


Welcoming PM Modi’s decision, Samyukta Kisan Morcha in a statement said, “We welcome PM Narendra Modi's decision to repeal all 3 anti-farmer laws; will wait for the announcement to take effect through due parliamentary procedures. If this happens, it will be a historic victory of the one year long farmers' struggle in India.”

“SKM also reminds the Prime Minister that the agitation of farmers is not just for the repeal of the three black laws, but also for a statutory guarantee of remunerative prices for all agricultural produce and for all farmers. This important demand of farmers is still pending,” the SKM added in the statement. 

The statement further read, “However, nearly 700 farmers have been martyred in this struggle. The central government's obstinacy is responsible for these avoidable deaths, including the murders at Lakhimpur Kheri.”

“So also is the withdrawal of the Electricity Amendment Bill. SKM will take note of all developments, hold its meeting soon and announce further decisions.”
