Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the government's decision to withdraw the three contentious farm laws on Friday, stating that the constitutional process to do so would be completed during the upcoming Winter Session of Parliament. “Today I have come to tell you that we have decided to withdraw the three agricultural laws. In the Parliament session starting later this month, we will complete the constitutional process to repeal these laws,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in a speech on Gurpurab, expressing his delight at the reopening of the Kartarpur gateway. The move comes ahead of Assembly elections in five states next year, as well as the BJP's recent lack of performance in by-elections. The Prime Minister stated that when he was given the opportunity to serve the country in 2014, agriculture development and farmer welfare were given top priority by the government. According to the Prime Minister, the administration was unable to persuade certain farmers of the importance of the farm regulations, so they were repealed.
