PM’s “politics” to choose Guru Purab to withdraw agricultural laws: Amit Shah

The decision comes two days after the reopening of the Kartarpur Sahib Corridor.

New Delhi:

Home Minister Amit Shah today said PM Modi’s decision to announce the withdrawal of three controversial agriculture laws on the “special day” of Guru Purab reflects “remarkable politics”. The Prime Minister this morning announced the withdrawal of laws that had led to massive protests by farmers, especially in Punjab and western Uttar Pradesh. Mr Shah said the election of the day to announce that nothing is on the PM’s mind other than the welfare of “every Indian”.

“The unique thing about PM Narendra Modi ji’s announcement is that he chose the special day of ‘Guru Parv’ to make this announcement. It also shows that he has no other consideration than the welfare of every Indian He has shown remarkable statesmanship,” he said in a tweet.

He called it a “welcome and politician-like move” soon after the announcement, adding that the government “will continue to serve our farmers and will always support them in their endeavours.”

The decision comes just two days after the Center announced the reopening of the Kartarpur Sahib Corridor. Both these moves are being seen as BJP’s efforts to woo voters in Punjab ahead of the state assembly elections next year.

Welcoming the move, opposition parties said that if the Modi government had taken this decision earlier, many deaths could have been avoided. He told that PM Modi and his ministers have tried to malign the protesters from the very beginning and have called them by name. He says the move is clearly just a pre-poll gimmick as the party has suffered losses in the recent by-elections and his own internal surveys indicate lack of support among the people.
