West Bengal Assembly Elections 2021: West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday said that her government will pass an anti-farmer bill resolution in the assembly. Launching a scathing attack against the government over the farm laws, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said, “I’m in favour of farmers & want the withdrawal of these three bills for the sake of the country & farmers. Before the bills came in, they had godowns made. Their political intention is clear & that’s why they are not taking it back.”Also Read - Amidst Sloganeering And Protests By Opposition, Lok Sabha Adjourned For The Day

Though the lone BJP member in the state assembly, O Rajagopal raised objections against some references in the resolution, he did not object to it. “There is a general consensus in the House. So, I did not object to the resolution. This is the democratic spirit,” he told the reporters outside the House.

Meanwhile, the seventh round of talks between the central leadership and farm union leaders remained inconclusive on Monday. The government ruled out the roll-back of the three contentious agricultural laws and the protesters refused to call off their agitation till that happens. The next round of discussions to resolve the deadlock over laws enacted in September last year will be held on January 8.
