The ove comes when Union minister of state of Agriculture, Kailash Choudhary repeated that the farm laws passed are in favour of the farmers and will not be revoked according to the demand of the farmers.
He further added that amendments can be made to the laws by giving consideration to the rising demands of the farmers.
