The Maharashtra Government on the 30th of September, withdrew its order to implement the new farm laws.
The decision was taken after the Indian National Congress, the ally of the Shiv Sena threatened to boycott the cabinet meeting.
Uddhave Thackeray, the Chief Minister of Maharashtra, in August, took a decision to implement the proposed new farmers bills.
The Uddhav Thackeray led Shiv Sena Government was already in a confusion over the implementation of the agriculture reform laws, passed by the Parliament.
The confusion was due to the opposition of the INC and the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) opposed the farm laws in the state, calling them “anti-farmer.”
In regard to this, Ajit Pawar, the Deputy Chief Minister of Maharashtra and NCP Leader said the State would not implement the three farmers bills in Maharashtra..
On the 28th of September, Sonia Gandhi, the President of the Indian National Congress (INC,) advised the State Government to inspect all possibilities of legislation under the Constitution’s Article 254(2) to negate the “anti-agricultural laws” and to prevent the “grave injustice” being done to farmers.
The Maharashtra Government is scheduled to conduct a Cabinet meeting on the 30th of September.
The Cabinet meeting started at 4:00 P.M., and three allies, the INC, the NCP and the Shiv Sena.
