BJP’s Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy on Friday took a dig at Narendra Modi after the Indian prime minister announce a spectacular surrender over controversial farm laws. Swamy said that the BJP needed to do ‘prayaschit (repent)’ over the government’s action. The outspoken BJP parliamentarian also asked if Modi would also admit that China had occupied India’s land.
He wrote, “I am happy for ending of the suffering farmers who sat in peaceful satyagraha for nearly a year in heat and icy cold now that Modi has backed down. But the BJP needs to do prayascit for not passing a resolution in NEC demanding from the PM to backdown.”

Swamy embarrassed Modi by asking if the letter would also admit the Chinese occupation of Indian territory. “ Will Modi now admit also that China has grabbed our territory and Modi and his Govt will strive to get back every inch in China’s possession?” he asked
Modi on Friday had stunned everyone by addressing the nation to announce that his government would repeat the controversial laws.
He had said, “I have come to tell you that we have decided to repeal the three farm laws. In the upcoming Parliament session starting at the end of this month, we will complete the constitutional process to repeal the three farm laws.”
According to some reports, nearly 600 farmers lost their lives during the year-long protests at different parts of the country.
