19 November 2021 Current Affairs:In his address on November 19, 2021, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the federal government will abolish all three agriculture laws.

Highlights:
♦ Farmers who are protesting were also asked to return to their houses.
♦ Farmers around the country began protesting the agricultural rules a year ago, and the decision to abolish them was made one year later.
♦ These laws will be repealed during Parliament’s Winter Session.
♦ Farmers’ main fear was that these regulations would eliminate the Minimum Support Price (MSP), which is guaranteed by the government on certain crops.
♦ Farmers will soon be at the mercy of large corporations.
♦ In India, the majority of farmers are small-scale farmers, according to the Prime Minister.
♦ To assist these farmers, the central government uses a multi-faceted approach that includes everything from seed technology to crop insurance plans.
♦ The three farm bills were introduced to help small farmers by empowering and strengthening them. 
♦ The government, on the other hand, was unable to persuade a group of farmers who were protesting. The laws were repealed in light of this.

Laws:
The three laws are:

  • Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020
  • Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020
  • Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020.
