Kerala passes resolution against central farm laws in assembly

Kerala Legislative Assembly Thursday passed a resolution and attacked the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre over the three contentious central farm laws against which farmers are agitating in Delhi.

The resolution was passed with the support of both ruling-LDF and opposition-UDF legislators.

The resolution was moved in a one-hour special session convened solely to discuss the farmers’ issue and express solidarity with them.

“Legislative assemblies have the moral responsibility to take a serious view when people have anxieties about certain laws which affect their lives,” Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said, adding that agriculture was part of the culture of the country.
