Sukhbir Badal said the centre should hold talks on ways and means to repeal the three farm laws in a "sincere manner."
"It should also desist from defaming farmers as separatists and victimising Arthiyas through income tax raids. It would be best if the government called a special one-day session to repeal the three Agricultural laws. Once this is done then new laws can be framed in consultation with farmers," he added.
Asking BJP to adopt a different approach to the entire issue, Badal claimed that "more than 40 farmers have already lost their lives in the last one month. They have been agitating against these measures ever since they were introduced as Ordinances six months back."
