Kerala assembly passes resolution against Centre’s farm laws

Kerala Assembly on Thursday passed a resolution against the Centre’s three farm laws. The resolution passed by the Pinarayi Vijayan-led government has asked the Centre to withdraw the three laws.

Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has moved a resolution against the three farm laws in the special session of the State Assembly today. The resolution says, “farmers’ genuine concerns should be addressed and the Centre should withdraw all three farm laws.”

“The current situation makes it clear that if this agitation continues, it will seriously affect Kerala. There is no doubt that Kerala will starve if the supply of food items from other states stops,” Vijayan said.

“At a time when the agricultural sector is facing a major crisis, the Central government has introduced and passed three new laws in Parliament that will have a major impact on the agricultural sector,” the Kerala CM said.

The resolution was moved in a one-hour special session convened solely to discuss the farmers’ issue and express solidarity with them. 

Several farmers have been protesting science November 26, at various border points of Delhi, demanding withdrawal of Centre’s three laws.
