"The Gandhian movement has once again shown its strength" : CM Bhupesh Baghel

Raipur: "The Gandhian movement has once again shown its strength", said Chhattisgarh chief minister Bhupesh Baghel, commenting on Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi's decision to repeal three contentious farm laws.

Baghel took to Twitter on Friday saying "The Gandhian movement has once again shown its strength. Congratulations to the farmers of the country for forcing the central government to withdraw the three black laws. This is the victory of democracy against injustice, and not only of farmers", said chief minister in his tweet.

Meanwhile, in a surprise announcement, PM Modi said that he will repeal the three farm laws passed by the Parliament a year ago. These laws have led to massive protests by farmers in many states across the country.
