The chief minister also introduced three bills to counter the Centre''s farm laws.

The three bills introduced by Singh are -- the Farmers Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Special Provisions and Punjab Amendment Bill 2020, the Essential Commodities (Special Provisions and Punjab Amendment) Bill 2020, and the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services (Special Provisions and Punjab Amendment) Bill 2020.

Addressing the members of the House, Singh said agriculture is a state subject but the Centre ignored it.

"I find it very strange what the government of India wants to do," he said.
