Protests Limited To One State. Farmers Being Instigated: Union Agri Minister In Parliament On Friday

Union agriculture minister Narendra Singh Tomar on Friday said that nothing is wrong in farm laws but in farmers protest. He reiterated that crop growers were being provoked, especially in Punjab. The minister also took a jibe at opposition and thanked them for “leaving no stone unturned to criticise the government”, and said that he had been asking every protester what’s “black” in the laws but hasn’t got an answer except constant demand to repeal the laws. On Thursday evening, the opposition members shouted slogans against the agri laws as the House assembled after the third adjournment at 7 PM. However, the House was adjourned for the fourth time till 8:30 PM as members did not yield to the request of the chair. Earlier in the day, when Lok Sabha assembled at 4 PM, members of the Opposition started shouting slogans against the government and the agri laws. Few questions related to the ministry of roads and highways were replied by Union minister Nitin Gadkari. But as sloganeering continued, Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla asked members to return to their seats.
