Laws are a complicated matter. Had it been simple, there would have been no need of lawyers. As regards politicians, they have always used laws to demonstrate action when in reality it does nothing more than a little activity on paper.
Recently Prime Minister announced “repeal of three farm laws.” Here is the problem:
Let me give an example of politicians exploiting laws to mislead people. India celebrates independence day on 15 August and believe that it gained independence in the year 1947. Was that correct?
British passed a law called India Independence Act, 1947 by which it created two dominions called India and Pakistan with King of England as head of there dominion. Jawahar Lal Nehru too an oath of allegiance to King George of England and served him till 1952 when India declared itself a republic. It is a common knowledge. So common that it is available on Wikipedia too. Yet every person I know, does not know it.
Back to the question. Will repeal means end of reforms on Farm Law?
It depends on the language of repeal. Generally repeal of an Amending Act merely removes dead wood (of old laws). So we have to wait and watch. May be Modi pulled a Nehru on agitators. After all if they could not tell as to what is wrong with reforms, how are they going to tell what is wrong with repeal. They will be referred to dictionary and asked ‘what is wrong with it? ‘
