Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday announced that the Centre has decided to repeal the three controversial farm laws. While many sections of society, including the Opposition and farmers, welcomed the decision, many opposed the decision by saying the government backtracked on reforms.

Addressing the nation on the occasion of Guru Nanak Jayanti, PM Modi said the three laws were for the benefit of farmers but “we couldn’t convince a section of farmers despite best efforts.”

As soon as PM Modi announced the roll back of the farm laws, many on social media wondered what other legislations the government would roll back. Soon, #CAA and #Article370 started trending on Twitter in India.
