The Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM), an umbrella body of 40 farm unions, on Friday welcomed Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s announcement to repeal the three farm laws.

It also said that the SKM would take note of all developments and would hold its meeting soon and announce further decisions if any.

“Samyukt Kisan Morcha welcomes this decision and will wait for the announcement to take effect through due parliamentary procedures,” the SKM said in a statement.

“The agitation of farmers is not just against the repeal of the three black laws, but also for a statutory guarantee to remunerative prices for all agricultural produce and for all farmers. This important demand of farmers is still pending,” it said.

In his address to the nation on the occasion of Guru Nanak Jayanti, Modi said the three farm laws would be repealed in the coming Winter Session of Parliament.
