Mapusa/New Delhi:  Union Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Arjun Ram Meghwal on Saturday said that the opposition parties which are crying foul over the short Parliamentary session, had themselves demanded for the same.

Addressing BJP State Executive Meeting in Goa through virtual mode, Meghwal said that the opposition was attempting to stall the Farm Bills, which are drafted in the interest of the farmers in the country because they were worried over increasing popularity of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant, State BJP President Sadanand Tanavade also attended the meeting, which was held at Mapusa city, 9 kms away from here.

“The opposition is criticizing government for passing the Farme Bills in a hurried manner during a short session of the Parliament. They are indulging in false propoganda,” Meghwal said.

“We wanted to have 18 day long session of the Parliament but due to COVID-19 outbreak there was a demand raised by the opposition to curtail the session,” he said.

The minister also said that the farm bills were long-pending initiative, which has been fulfilled by Modi-led government. “You cannot say that it was passed hurriedly. It was pending for decades,” Meghwal said.

He said that the Bill is about Agriculture and Labour reforms which will go a long way in increasing the income of the farmers. “The agriculture and labour reforms will work as a growth engine for the country,” Meghwal stated.
