Parliament proceedings | Farm Laws Repeal Bill passed in Rajya Sabha by voice vote in less than five minutes

The Farm Laws Repeal Bill 2021 was passed by voice vote in Rajya Sabha on Monday amid persistent demand by the Opposition members who wanted a discussion.

The Bill was cleared in less than five minutes as the Rajya Sabha convened after lunch break at 2 p.m. on Monday. It was passed in the Lok Sabha earlier in the day.

Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar who introduced the Bill said discussion was not required as Opposition had also been demanding the repeal of the law.

“The Bill is an example of the magnanimity shown by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he announced the decision to repeal the law on the occasion of Gurpurab. The Bill reflects that there is no difference in the Prime Minister’s words and deeds. The Opposition, including the Congress party, has been demanding the repeal of the law ….so there is no need for discussion,” Mr. Tomar said while responding to Congress’ Malikarjun Kharge who sought a discussion on the issue.
