Jammu: Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha on Friday welcomed Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s decision to repeal the farm laws.
Sinha was delivering a speech in Jammu on the occasion of Prakash Parv.
In his address, Sinha said, “It is the beauty of democracy to respect people’s opinions. I welcome the Prime Minister’s decision. There were several discussions between the farmers and the Centre. However, they could not come to a concrete solution following which the laws have been repealed.”
“In my personal opinion, if one compares the statistical figures, the Minimum Support Price (MSP) and the agricultural produce have been significantly increased in this sector since 2014. Despite this, the impasse remained. I do not wish to further speak on the issue and welcome the decision,” Sinha said. (KINS)
