PM Modi also clarified that the government is also working on other measures to increase the income of farmers. If we still delay then it will lead the farmers towards darkness. He further said that we have to choose one in politics and national policy. There was a lot of discussion in the House on the farmer movement but there was no talk on the original issue.
Prime Minister Modi was giving his reply on President Ram Nath Kovind’s address in Rajya Sabha today. However, opposition continued in Parliament even during this time. There was a continuous uproar against the government demanding the farmer movements and withdrawal of all three agricultural laws.
