The Congress has raised apprehension that the three controversial farm laws, which were rolled back by the Centre recently, might be re-introduced by the government in some other form in the future. 

This was stated by Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge while speaking to the media in new Delhi after attending the all-party meet convened by the Centre ahead of winter session of the Parliament. 

“Although the Government has withdrawn the three controversial farm laws, but the Prime Minister had said that he couldn’t make the farmers understand. This means that these laws may be brought back in some other form in the future,” said Mallikarjun Kharge. 

“Compensation should also be given to farmers who lost their lives during the farm laws protest,” Mallikarjun Kharge, Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha said.

The all-party meet on Sunday was chaired by defence minister Rajnath Singh. 

We expected the PM to attend the meet today. But for some reasons, he didn’t attend it,” Kharge added. 

He further said: “We demanded from the government that families of COVID-19 victims be given compensation of Rs 4 lakhs each.” 

On the other AAP MP Sanjay Singh accused the government of not letting anyone speak during the meeting.

“The government didn’t let any member speak during all-party meeting. They don’t us speak in all-party meet and the Parliament,” Sanjay Singh said. 

He added: “However, I somehow raised the issue of bringing law on MSP guarantee in the winter session and other issues including extending BSF’s jurisdiction.”
