New Delhi. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday joined a protest organized by the Punjab unit of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) here and demanded the complete withdrawal of the three central agricultural laws that came into existence recently. Kejriwal addressed workers from Punjab at Jantar Mantar and said that AAP has a very clear stance on agricultural laws. He said, "We want these three laws to be withdrawn in full". He said, "Another law should be brought in the country on MSP (Minimum Support Price). The entire Delhi stands with the farmers in this fight and as the Chief Minister of Delhi, I support you in this demonstration. ''
Kejriwal said that some parties are involved in politics regarding the three agricultural laws. Kejriwal said without naming anyone, "When the bill was being drafted, a national party leader was in the committee, and he congratulated the BJP for enacting the law, assuring that the bill would be passed and when They are opposing the bill passed. Are people fools? ”She claimed that the BJP had promised to implement the Swaminathan Commission report, but she was doing the exact opposite of what was recommended in it. He said, "When he came to ask for votes, he said that he would implement the Swaminathan report, but what did he do after winning?" They are removing MSP. When our government was formed in Delhi, government schools and hospitals were in bad shape. So what did we do? We did not stop them, We rectified them. BJP has betrayed the farmers of this country.
Along with Kejriwal, senior party leaders Sanjay Singh, AAP MP Bhagwant Mann and other party MLAs joined the protest. Three laws - Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Price Assurance and Agricultural Services Agreement Act - 2020, Farmers Product Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Simplification) Act 2020 and Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act 2020 - September 27 after the approval of President Ram Nath Kovind Have become effective.
