Replying to the Motion of Thanks on President Kovind’s address, Prime Minister Narendra Modi Monday said that the newly-passed farm laws should be given a chance and that the MSP system is here to stay. Requesting the protesting farmers to go back, he reiterated that the government is open to talks. Modi said opposition to the Centre’s newly passed farm laws lacks in substance and that they have been stalled for decades. Expressing gratitude to all the parliamentarians, PM Modi said the credit for battling the pandemic goes to the citizens and not to the government. He also said that the world has recognised India’s potential to tackle the pandemic.
