India’s Modi to repeal controversial farm laws

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced on Friday that he has decided to repeal three contentious farm laws that farmers have been protesting for more than a year.

“Today I have come to tell you, the entire country, that we have decided to withdraw all three agricultural laws,” Modi said in a national address.

“We will complete the constitutional process to repeal these three agricultural laws in the parliament session that begins later this month.”
