He is not the first Prime Minister who is forced to roll back but none other than him ever appeared before the people and announce the decision with utter pain for he continues to believe that the three farm laws were brought to benefit those farmers who possess less than two hectares of land

When Prime Minister Narendra Modi had the option to ignore the demands of one segment of the farming community that has been protesting at different corners of Delhi’s borders, he showed benevolence towards the protestors and declared that his government will repeal the three farm laws. In the 17-minute long speech, he showed the audacity to stand before the nation of 135 crore citizens and apologized to all – the protestors, the supporters and the bench sitters – for his failure to convince the segment which felt disgruntled. 

He is not the first Prime Minister who is forced to roll back but none other than him ever appeared before the people and announce the decision with utter pain for he continues to believe that the three farm laws were brought to benefit those farmers who possess less than two hectares of land, are about 10 crore households and make 80 per cent of the farming community. In the last days of Manmohan Singh’s Prime Ministership, the country has seen how a young Rahul Gandhi, who was a mere MP then, tore off the copy of the law in a public meeting and belittled his Prime Minister. 

Modi too had the option to ask his Minister for Agriculture to make the statement but he chose to appear himself before the people to also let them know the intent, will and courage that took to enact the law and now the withdrawal of it. 

On the occasion of the birthday of Guru Nanak he politely requested the protesting farmers to return to their homes, fields and families. He discussed the teachings of Guru Nanak Dev and congratulated all for the reopening of Kartarpur Corridor. He didn’t fail to repeat his vow that his government is dedicated for the prosperity of the farmers through interventions of ‘beej, bima, bazar and bachat.’ 

The agricultural budget of the Modi Government is five times above previous governments’ budgets. Micro irrigation allocation is doubled to Rs 10,000 crores. Loans made available to farmers have reached Rs 16 lakh crore this year. All components of government support to farmers in all farming activities, including animal husbandry and fisheries, has increased. 

Federalism is the basic structure of the Constitution and Modi knows that it can’t be bulldozed no matter what majority one enjoys in Lok Sabha. Hence, he announced the setting up of a 'special committee' that will take all key decisions for the betterment of the agriculture sector and it will have representatives of the Centre, state government, farmers, scientists and agriculture experts. The move is nothing but a reinforcement of the ideals enshrined in the Preamble of the Constitution – ‘unity and integrity.’
