Farms Laws: PM Modi withdrew the three laws on the day of the Gurpurab Festival

Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi announced the withdrawal of three farm laws on November 19. Indian Farmers from Punjab and Haryana have been protesting these laws since November 26 last year.

Particularly, the laws have been withdrawn on the day of Guru Nanak’s birthday. Indeed, Guru Nanak is the founder of Sikhism. Moreover, most of the Punjabis are Sikhs.

The first farm law is The Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement of Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, which denotes the practice of contract farming.

The Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act is the second controversial farm law. The purpose of this law was to remove the government’s authority to limit stockpiles of vital food goods, save in exceptional situations.

The third law is The Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act. It establishes a method for farmers to sell their goods other than Agriculture Produce Market Committees (APMCs).

However, the withdrawal of three controversial farm laws after a long protest is a massive victory for the farmers around the country.
