 The ruling BJP on Thursday defended the three new farm laws in Rajya Sabha saying the government was committed to farmers' welfare, and questioned the opposition parties for changing their stance on agricultural market reforms.

Speaking on the Motion of Thanks to the President's address to the joint sitting of Parliament, senior BJP member Jyotiraditya Scindia said the government is committed to the welfare of farmers and has taken a host of steps in the last six years to increase their income.
Scindia, who was recently elected to Rajya Sabha, highlighted that the NDA government has been successful in handling the COVID-19 pandemic and also turning the crisis into an opportunity.
The BJP leader spoke at length on the three new farm laws passed by Parliament in September last year, and said the Centre has held 11 rounds of discussions with farmer unions to break the deadlock and end the over-two-month-long protest at various borders of the national capital.
