MORENA (MP): Union agriculture minister Narendra Singh Tomar on Sunday made it clear that the central government has no plan to reintroduce the three withdrawn farm laws, and accused Congress leader Rahul Gandhi of doing “cheap politics” and misleading people.

Tomar’s statement comes a day after the Congress alleged that the Centre was hatching a conspiracy to reintroduce the three farm laws after the upcoming assembly polls. The Congress had made the allegation after Tomar, during an event in Maharashtra’s Nagpur, said while talking about repealed farm laws that the government moved a “step back” and “will move forward again”.

“There is no proposal of the government to bring back agriculture reform laws. People like Rahul Gandhi indulge in cheap politics. These people have tried unsuccessfully to mislead the country by misquoting my statement,” he said.

In Nagpur, Tomar had said that the Centre brought agriculture laws, but some people did not like these laws which were a big reform brought about 70 years after the Independence under Modi’s leadership. After this statement, Rahul Gandhi had said, “If anti-farmer steps are taken again, then satyagraha of annadatas will take place. Had defeated arrogance, will again defeat it.”
