Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Friday welcomed Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s surprise announcement to withdraw the three contentious farm laws calling it a historic decision.
“I thank PM and welcome this step taken by him. It is a historic day,” Adityanath said in a statement.
He said though a large section of people believed that such laws can play an essential role to increase the income of farmers, farmer organisations opposed it.
“Government’s attempt to establish a dialogue at all levels did not yield any result hence it was withdrawn,” he added.
CM said in the democracy we cannot force anything and have to hear the voices of the people.
PM had already said that a committee will be formed on the MSP demand made by the farmers, he further added.
