Calling the three farm laws introduced by the Modi government as “black laws”, Rashtriya Loktantrik Party (RLP) chief Hanuman Beniwal said that his party would “think about continuing its support” to the ruling BJP-led NDA if these are not repealed.
Beniwal, who is MP from Nagaur, said he had written to Home Minister Amit Shah for the repeal of the laws. He said the Centre should hold unconditional talks with protesting farmers. “I have opposed the Centre’s farm laws and today I have written a letter to Amit Shahji that if the black laws are not revoked, then we will think about continuing our support to NDA (National Democratic Alliance),” Beniwal said in a video statement.
In his letter, Beniwal said the three farm sector laws should be immediately withdrawn in view of the ongoing farmers’ protest in the country. He demanded implementation of all recommendations of Swaminathan Commission.
Beniwal said since farmers and youth are the power of RLP, he would be “compelled to reconsider the decision of remaining a party in NDA, if the farm laws are not revoked at the earliest”.
RLP is an ally of BJP in Rajasthan.
