Breaking News LIVE Updates Nov 29, 2021: Parliament on Monday passed the Farm Laws Repeal Bill, to repeal the three contentious agri laws against which farmers have been protesting for over a year, with its passage in Rajya Sabha. Earlier in the day, Lok Sabha also passed The Farm Laws Repeal Bill, 2021 within minutes of its introduction in the lower House. As soon as Rajya Sabha met in the afternoon, Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar introduced the Farm Laws Repeal Bill, 2021 shortly. Tomar moved the motion and said while moving the bill for the passage that the three laws were brought for the benefit of farmers. He regretted that the government could not convince the agitating farmers about the benefits of the laws. He also attacked Congress for adopting “double standard” on the laws, as its own election manifesto talked about the need for reforms in the farm sector. He said Prime Minister Narendra Modi showed a large heart by announcing the repeal of the laws on Guru Nanak Jayanti. He said as both the government and the opposition parties are for repeal of the laws, so there was no need for any discussion on the farm repeal bill. The House passed the bill with a voice vote amid protests by Congress and TMC members. Dola Sen (TMC) and Nadimul Haque (TMC) were in the well to protest the passage of the bill without debate. After the passage of the bill, the House was adjourned for half an hour.Also Read - After Lok Sabha, Rajya Sabha Passes Farm Laws Repeal Bill 2021 Amid Uproar from Opposition
