Prime Minister Office (PMO) Tweeted, “Today is the Parkash Purab of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji. Today the PM will inaugurate key schemes relating to irrigation in Mahoba, Uttar Pradesh. Then, he will go to Jhansi for the ‘Rashtra Raksha Samparpan Parv.’ Before all of these programmes, he will address the nation at 9 AM.” 

He said, “Goal of the three farm laws was to empower farmers, especially small farmers.” “Three laws were in farmers’ benefit but we couldn’t convince a section of farmers despite best efforts,” PM Modi added.

Further, offering homage to the first Sikh guru, he tweeted, “On the special occasion of the Parkash Purab of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji, I recall his pious thoughts and noble ideals. His vision of a just, compassionate and inclusive society inspires us. Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s emphasis on serving others is also very motivating.”

According to the reports of Jagran English, the prime minister further said that the government will complete the process to take back the farm laws in the upcoming Parliament session scheduled to start in November end.
