Power of people greater than people in power: KTR after farm laws rollback

Hyderabad: Hours after Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced to repeal three controversial farm laws, Telangana Rashtra Samithi Working President K.T. Rama Rao said the power of people is always greater than the people in power.

"The power of people is always greater than the people in power. Proved once again by the Indian farmers who got what they demanded by their relentless agitation. Jai Kisan Jai Jawan #FarmLawsRepealed #TRSwithFarmers #FarmersProtest," said KTR.

Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao on Thursday had said TRS would fight till the end over the NDA government's ''anti-people policies and anti-farm laws.''

Repealing the farm laws is a victory of agitating farmers of the country, Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee president Revanth Reddy said in a statement complementing the peasant community for their incessant stir against the new legislation.

''This is a historic victory. Even dictators would succumb to the anger of farmers who are the backbone of the country,'' Reddy said.

All the tactics being applied to suppress the farmers' agitation became futile and had the Centre realized the seriousness of the situation in time, so many lives lost in the agitation would have been saved, he added.

The farmers' stir inspired other agitations on public causes, the congress leader said.

Earlier addressing the nation, Prime Minister Modi announced that the Centre has decided to repeal the three farm laws. The laws were passed little more than a year before which sparked widespread agitation.

Coinciding with the auspicious occasion of Guru Nanak Jayanti, Modi also announced that the constitutional process to repeal the laws would be taken up in the winter session of Parliament that begins on November 29. He appealed to the agitating farmers to withdraw their protest and return to their families.

Farmers' Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Bill, 2020, Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Bill, 2020, and Essential Commodities (Amendment) Bill 2020, were passed in the monsoon session last year. President gave his assent to the three bills on September 27, 2020.
