Earlier, addressing the nation on the occasion of Guru Nanak Jayanti, Prime Minister said the three farm laws were for the benefit of farmers but “we couldn’t convince a section of farmers despite best efforts”.
The legislation to withdraw the farm laws will be introduced in the upcoming Parliament session starting on November 29.
