NEWS: Kerala Assembly unanimously passes resolution against three Farm Laws
In a special session of the Kerala Assembly wherein the resolution against the three Farm Laws was moved by the Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan.
The resolution was supported by the Congress party-led opposition, United Democratic Front. However the only BJP MLA in the Assembly, O Rajagopal did not oppose the resolution though he spoke in favor of the Three Farm Laws. He said that there is a tendency to oppose everything and anything that the Modi Government introduces.
The resolution pointed out that the Farm laws did away with Minimum Support Price (MSP) and is anti-farmer and pro-corporate. It would also impact Kerala, a consumer State, Chief Minister Vijayan reading out the resolution said.
The resolution, therefore, called on the Central government to repeal the laws.
The opposition United Democratic Front also stated that the controversial laws were against the federal scheme envisaged in the Constitution as per which the Parliament has no power to enact the laws passed and the power for the same is vested with State governments.
Similarly, on 31st December 2019, the Kerala assembly had passed a similar resolution against the CAA.
