“Kerala Will Starve”: CM Pinarayi Vijayan Brings Resolution Against Farm Laws In Assembly

Earlier this month, the Kerala government decided to move the Supreme Court against these farm laws brought by the Centre.


Cochin| Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has moved a resolution against all the three agricultural laws brought by the Centre in the Assembly amid the ongoing farmer agitation across the country. A special session of the state assembly has been called against the agriculture bill. During this, Vijayan said that it is clear from the current situation that if the movement continues it will have a serious impact on Kerala. There is no doubt that if food supplies from other states are stopped then Kerala will remain hungry.

The introduction of this proposal means that new agricultural laws will not apply to Kerala. Governor Arif Mohammed Khan on Monday approved the convening of a day-long assembly session on 31 December to discuss the three controversial central agricultural laws and pass a resolution against them. A few days ago, the CPI (M) -led Left Democratic Front (LDF) government sent a new proposal to convene the assembly session as the Governor had earlier rejected a similar recommendation.

Earlier this month, the Kerala government decided to move the Supreme Court against these bills of the Centre. State Agriculture Minister VS Sunil Kumar had said that the state would move the Supreme Court against the agriculture law. He had said that as agriculture comes in the concurrent list, new laws infringe on the rights of the states and it is against the federal structure of the country.
