Following the Punjab model, Kerala will try to pass a unanimous resolution against the three-contentious farm laws brought by the BJP-led Centre. A special cabinet meeting held today has decided to hold an assembly session on Wednesday, December 23, before the scheduled budget session.
“Kerala cabinet has decided to convene a special assembly session on December 23 before the scheduled budget session to discuss and reject the three controversial farm laws. Kerala stands in solidarity with the agitating farmers,” said Finance Minister Thomas Isaac.
The one-hour long assembly session is restricted at dealing with only the farm bills. Reportedly, the assembly aims at rejecting the Centre’s three farm laws that have sparked nationwide protests. Interestingly, the ruling LDF and the opposition UDF agree that the bills have to be rejected and their respective leaders Pinarayi Vijayan and Ramesh Chennithala have to have an agreement on the matter.
However, it will be interesting to know what O Rajagopal, the lone BJP MLA, will have to say on this matter at the special session.
