Thiruvananthapuram: Even as farmers have been relentlessly demonstrating against the agri laws, Kerala is set to pass resolution against Farm Laws as a special cabinet meeting held in Thiruvananthapuram on Monday has taken a decision to convene a special assembly session on Wednesday to discuss the new farm laws passed by the Centre.

Both CPI(M)-led Left Democratic Front (LDF) and Congress-led United Democratic Front (UDF) have opposed against farm laws and hence the special assembly session will be convened to pass a resolution.

Kerala Finance Minister Thomas Isaac confirmed the cabinet decision and said, "Kerala cabinet decided to convene a special session of the legislative assembly on 23rd December before the scheduled budget session to discuss and reject the controversial farm laws. Kerala is in solidarity with the farmers' struggle."

The Cabinet’s recommendation to convene a special assembly will be made to the Governor. The short-duration assembly session will just be limited to discussing the farm laws and the full budget session of the Kerala Assembly will be held from January 8.

Farmers are protesting against the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement of Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020, the Farmers Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020, and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.
