Democracy wins: Ashok Gehlot Rajasthan's CM on repeal of farm laws
It is also a triumph for farmers' patience, who has been protesting for the past year.
Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said on Friday that the repeal of the three farm laws is a "win" for democracy and a "loss" for the Centre's arrogance.
He also stated that it is a win for the farmers' patience, who have been protesting for the past year.
"The announcement of repealing all three black agricultural laws is a victory of democracy and defeat of the arrogance of the Modi government. This is a victory of the patience of the farmers who have been agitating for the last one year. The country can never forget that hundreds of farmers have lost their lives due to the short-sightedness and pride of the Modi government," Gehlot tweeted.
"I bow to all the farmers who sacrificed their lives in the farmers' movement. This is the victory of their sacrifice," he said.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in his Friday address to the nation that the government has chosen to abolish three farm laws that have been the subject of farmer protests for the last year.
