Contentious farm laws should be revoked: Ghulam Nabi Azad in Rajya Sabha

New Delhi: Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad on Wednesday said instead of taking on the farmers, the Centre should resolve the problems through negotiations and revoke the three contentious farm laws.

While participating in the discussion on the motion of thanks on the President’s address in the Rajya Sabha, Mr Azad said that the dispute would not have arisen had these three laws been sent to the Select Committee.

Criticising the violence that shook the National Capital on the Republic Day, he said, “We condemn the violence that took place on January 26th and call for strict punishment to the culprits. But would like to add that people who were not involved in the incident should not be implicated.”

Describing the violence as against democracy and law and order, the erstwhile J&K chief minister said the Opposition strongly condemns the incident. He said that insult to the national flag will not be tolerated under any circumstances.

Demanding immediate withdrawal of sedition charges against some senior journalists and Lok Sabha MP Shashi Tharoor, he wondered how can a person who was the minister of state for external affairs be a traitor? Some of the editors involved in the case play an important role in keeping democracy alive. The government faces many economic and many big challenges that must be addressed first.
