INDIA RAISES OBJECTION OVER FARM LAWS DISCUSSION TO BRITISH ENVOY

Bhubaneswar- India showed strong objection against the farm laws discussion

to in the British High Commissioner today to express its disapproval of the

discussions on farmers' protest and press freedom in the British parliament.

Many MPs of the Labour party, Liberal Democrats,

and the Scottish National

Party raised concern over the government’s reaction to the protests in the 90-

minute debate was held on Monday.

The UK government had responded that concerns will be raised with India

when both Prime Ministers meet in person.

The foreign ministry today said the Foreign Secretary had summoned the envoy

and conveyed " strong opposition to unwarranted and tendentious discussion on

agricultural reforms in India in the British Parliament".

The official has made it clear that this represented a gross interference in

the politics of another democratic country. He advised that British MPs should

refrain from practicing vote bank politics by misrepresenting events, especially

in relation to another fellow democracy, the ministry said.
