Sonia Gandhi asks Congress-ruled states to nullify Farmers’ Acts

Sonia Gandhi has advised the Congress-ruled states to introduce another bill to nullify the recent enacted Agricultural bills. While citing Article 254(2), Mrs. Gandhi has urged the states to pass laws to negate the anti-agriculture central laws.

According to top sources, the All India Congress Committee (AICC) has already sent a draft of the ‘model bill’ to the state governments which are likely to be passed in their assemblies by calling a special session.

The bill is named as “Farmers Right and Special Security Provision Bill 2020”

Congress is already protesting against the ‘anti-farmer’ bills and now the party leader Rahul Gandhi has launched another attack by leading ‘Kheti Bachao Yatra’ in Punjab, Delhi, and Haryana.

The government has recently passed three bills, namely, Farmers Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020, The Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Service Act, 2020, and The Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020

Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with other senior leaders including, Home Minister Amit Shah, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, and others have assured the farming community stating that these bills will only “empower” them.
