‘Can’t build new century with old laws’: PM Modi’s pitch for reforms amid farmers’ protest

PM Modi’s remarks come a day before the ‘Bharat Bandh’ - a nationwide strike call given by various farmer organisations demanding repeal of the three laws passed in September.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said that reforms are needed for development and some laws from the past century have become a burden now. The comments were made during the virtual inauguration of Agra metro rail project, at a time when farmers are protesting the three laws passed by Parliament.
