Bengal CM threatens nation-wide protest against farm laws

Dec 03, 2020 16:55 IST

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has threatened a country-wide agitation if the Centre doesn't withdraw the new farm laws. In a series of tweet the TMC chief said that she was concerned about the farmers and their livelihoods and asked the govt to withdraw the laws. She added that a party meeting has been called for Friday in which they will discuss how the Essential Commodities Act is impacting common people and resulting in sky rocketing prices. She also slammed the govt's divestment plans and said that the Centre was selling everything from Railways to Coal. Govt must withdraw this ill-conceived disinvestment & privatisation policy, she added
