Kolkata: In view of the constant protest of the farmers demanding repealing of the farm laws, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee during the second day of West Bengal Assembly session urged everyone to hit the streets and force the BJP led Central government to repeal the farm laws.
Mamata also alleged that the BJP is purposely maligning the protesting farmers by calling them ‘Anti-Nationals’.
“If the farmers suffer there will be food shortage across the country. The farm bills will not just affect Haryana and Punjab but will also have impact on Bengal so the BJP government should revoke the farm laws immediately,” mentioned Mamata adding that Prime Minister Narendra Modi should immediately resign if the laws are not repealed.
Pledging that the ruling Trinamool Congress is in support of the farmers, the TMC supremo said that she will lend all possible help to the protesting farmers.
Chanting slogans against the Chief Minister, BJP MLAs including those defected to the BJP from TMC left the assembly session and protested in the well.
According to the protesting MLAs the laws should not be revoked as it is already passed by the BJP government.
“The Chief Minister claims that she is maintaining the culture of West Bengal. But her speeches don’t reveal so. There is no need of repealing the farm laws,” mentioned a BJP MLA.
