Bengal assembly passes resolution demanding withdrawal of new farm laws | India News – Times of India


KOLKATA: The West Bengal assembly on Thursday passed a resolution against the three contentious farm laws enacted by the Centre and demanded that they be withdrawn immediately.
The resolution was moved by parliamentary affairs minister Partha Chatterjee.
While speaking on the resolution, chief minister Mamata Banerjee said that the Centre should either withdraw the new laws or step down.
The CPM and the Congress supported the resolution but demanded that the state government withdraw similar laws it had passed a few years back.
The assembly witnessed unruly scenes in the morning after Chatterjee moved the resolution, with BJP MLAs led by their legislative party leader Manoj Tigga rushing to the Well of the House, claiming the TMC government has launched a “misinformation campaign” against the laws.
Tigga, along with his party MLAs, subsequently walked out shouting ‘Jai Shri Ram’ slogans.
