To counter the central government's recent farm laws, the Punjab government introduced three bills of its own in the state assembly on Tuesday.

Chief minister of Punjab, Captain Amarinder Singh told the assembly that “three farm legislations, along with proposed Electricity (Amendment) Bill, 2020, are clearly against the interests of farmers and landless workers, and time-tested agriculture marketing system established not only in Punjab but also in Haryana and Western Uttar Pradesh… The draft resolution states that farm laws are against the Constitution (Entry 14 List-II), which mentions agriculture as a state subject and these legislations are a direct attack to encroach upon functions and powers of states, as enshrined in the Constitution.”

In this specially organised Assembly session, Manpreet Singh Badal, finance minister of state also introduced an Amendment seeking Bill for Civil Procedure, 1908 code.

Captain Amarinder Singh, chief minister of Punjab also moved a resolution on the state assembly's floor over the government's concerns regarding Electricity Act amendments and recent agriculture ordinances.
