Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) affiliate organisation Swadeshi Jagran Manch (SJM) has welcomed the Centre’s decision to repeal the three farm laws.
The organisation’s chief Ashwani Mahajan has said that the move will put an end to the “evil intentions” of “anti-national and separatist forces”.
Speaking to news agency ANI, Mr Mahajan said that the government had “good intentions” behind passing the agricultural laws and it was ready to amend the laws.
“If any law is made, there are some shortcomings in it, we can improve it too. The shortcomings were also pointed out by the farmers,” said Mr Mahajan.
“When the talks with the farmers were being held, all the changes that the Swadeshi Jagran Manch had suggested after talking with the farmers, the government had agreed to accept those suggestions. However, the farmers were persistent that these laws should be withdrawn,” he said.
Mr Mahajan said that some “separatist forces” took advantage of the farmers’ movement.
“Flags of Khalistan were put up there. Other separatist forces also became active there. At some places, Naxalism was also active,” he said.
Mr Mahajan also said that the government was “flexible” and praised it for the decision saying, “it is a good tradition.”
“With this move, the separatist forces were also defeated because the agenda they had is now over,” he said.
