Now it to seen what decision the protesting farmers take.

After the decision to withdraw the law, it considered a victory for the protesting farmers. the central government came on the back foot, now the question of the people whether it has ever happened before that any law withdrawn to the government. In such a situation, know whether this has happened before and if it has happened then when did it happen?
The government came on the back foot in the land acquisition law
Actually, before this, in the year 2015, the government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi had to face difficulties. This the occasion of the Land Acquisition Act and at that time the bill had to withdrawn in the end. This bill was also related to the farmers and at that time also there was a boil among the farmers and there was opposition to the bill all over the country. Even during that time PM Modi had to say in the ‘Mann Ki Baat’ program that he is withdrawing the Land Acquisition Bill.
Let us inform that the Central Government had issued ordinances four times regarding the amended Land Acquisition Bill, but it could not get the bill approved by the Parliament. In the end it also had to withdrawn. It happened that as soon as he came to the government in 2014, the Narendra Modi government had brought an ordinance to amend the Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency Act, 2013 in Land Acquisition and Rehabilitation Act, 2013. Through the ordinance, the government had made many changes in the 2013 law.
This act belonged to the UPA government, which came into effect from January 1, 2014. This act was in lieu of the Land Acquisition Act, 1994 which was in force for many years. Almost a year after the UPA law came into force, that , on 31 December 2014, the NDA government passed an ordinance to amend this law.
UPA had withdrawn the ordinance
The Congress government has also done this before the PM Modi government. The UPA government (Manmohan Singh the prime minister) withdrew the controversial ordinance protecting convicted MPs and MLAs. This ordinance was related to the Representation of the People Act in which there was an ordinance and a bill. The UPA government announced that in view of the protest, the government is withdrawing both.
It clear in the UPA government’s ordinance that even after convicted, MPs or MLAs can continue in their posts till an appeal is made in the court. Seeing the protest, Rahul Gandhi rubbished this ordinance and the government had to withdraw it in the end.
